Liany adds, “my first thought was our children, and so I asked to delay our acceptance while we organised childcare.” Thankfully, Liany’s parents will be accommodating the kids while the couple go to Rio.
“It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” says Jerome. “We would never have planned it for ourselves as it would have been beyond our budget to take our entire family. It’s the perfect excuse for Liany and I to do something together - just for us.”
It will be Jerome and Liany’s first trip to South America, and they are most looking forward to the Opening Ceremony and watching the equestrian event in particular. The couple will also be taking a half-day city tour in Buenos Aires, Argentina, included in the prize.
The couple sold their Howick property in May and have already purchased their new home in Clevedon. “The whole process was great. Kevin was a very good agent and we were very happy with the outcome.” Settlement will be at the end of July, just weeks before they depart for Rio.
“A new home and a dream holiday - things have worked out very well for us.”
