Kim and Simon

Kim is from country New South Wales, near Canberra and Simon grew up in Melbourne. We met in Perth, then spent some time as expats in Singapore before returning home. That was followed by another sailing adventure until we returned to work, this time in Brisbane.

We've had busy working lives, work may have come to an end or maybe it's just on hold. You never know what the future holds.  We love to travel and in recent years, especially skiing and snow boarding in Japan. Our other great loves are food, wine and our wonderful families and friends. Sailing was our weekend sport, today it is our  method of transport that enable us to travel the world, explore unique places, experience difference cultures and meet interesting people.

  2. in spiritualism and some forms of alternative medicine) a supposed emanation surrounding the body of a living creature and regarded as an essential part of the individual.
