Joann is from Hobart, and John originally from London. John migrated to Australia in 1971. Joann and John met in Perth in late-2017.
Joann and John now reside together in Broome and both love to travel. In these covid-19 days that means within Western Australia, and as a result a Motohome was purchased in June 2020 to facilitate this. However, they really enjoy overseas travel, especially to destinations like Vietnam and Thailand - it would be lovely to get back there some time.

John has three fine children from his marriage with Carol (who passed away in 2017): Andrew (1974), Simon (1975) and Lisa (1978), with two granddaughters from each of them. There is more information about John and Carol and their children here.
