Our exchanges has been
We are very flexible!
First time in Canada. In a flat including a huge roofterrace with stunning views, as this foto, close to "downtown". Springtime, so a little cold and very changing weather.
Malaga & Fuengirola Spain on one week, even in February it is quite nice. Day trips to both Gibraltar and Nerja. So much to see, driving the coast road both south and north, many beautiful villages along the Costa del Sol. Our exchange appartment was in the middle of town so we also got the opportunity to experience the frantic nightlife of Malaga's city center.
So much to explore in this busy city, with its history and many sights. Full schedule every day to find time to see all the ancient buildings. Took a couple of day trips to other beautiful places, such as Sounis with Apollo's temple and Corinth with the incredible handdugged channel.
In a nice and cosy apartment in a quiet but yet central area. Mixed cultures, a lot of things to do. Did visit the European side, and all the famous sights. Thank you, the lovely couple and our new friends, Mehmet and Anca, for exchanging with us.
Great stay in a nice and well equipped home just at the seafront with 3 pools in the area. Nicolas & Ilham are lovely generous and kind people! It is these kind of exchangers which makes it feel so enjoyable to exchange homes.
In the middle of the old town, with all the little narrow but cute streets filled with restaurants and tourist traps, we lived in a gated comunity, safe and modern. Overlooking the rooftops and several bell towers we enjoyed many fine moments on the balcony.
LA at its best. House in Signal Hill - Long Beach, close downtown, yet quiet and nice area. Included a trip to Las Vegas for 2 days. Beautiful California.
Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve in Manhattan, NY. Fantastic, wonderful and exciting. Many long walks across the big island.
A wonderful town with people that make you feel welcome. Great exchangers, which left lots of info about the city, made the journey really valuable
In a very nice area, Maison Alfort, just outside the center of Paris, in a small cozy 2 bedroom apartment.
With the small always purring and mewing cat Zoe as a nice company made this exchange one of our best.
Lovely appartment in a very nice area. Southwest Spain's beautiful beaches and towns gave us an incredible vacation.
Cadiz and Seville could be reached on a day trip, and we did!
Invited on dinner one day before the actual exchange we had a great time. A very nice classic house in Österbro, just outside the downtown area, 10 min by bus to Ströget and Nyhavn. Easter time = Wonderful Copenhagen!
Great exchangers, nice flat in a quit area. We loved all the spanish food and pastries that we got from our hosts. On New Year's Eve, we sat out on the Llas Ramblas and ate a late dinner. Awesome weather although it was wintertime.
The greater the number you are traveling with, and the longer you stay, the cheaper it will become compared to other accommodations.
You get to know someone else's home and surroundings, and get good advices about what to do.
You often can borrow things you need, from bicycles to games. Since you can wash your clothes, you can reduce your packing.
You are not locked out of mealtimes or guided tours. You take care of yourself and disposes over your own time
You will stay outside the normal tourist areas.
You get someone who is watering your flowers, taking care of your mail, and maybe mowing the grass and feeding the fish. Your home is not empty so the the risk of burglary decreases.
