Home Exchange for the Summer
We're (read: me) planning next summer's holiday, and hopefully a dream will come true: Home Exchange. I've wanted to do it for years, and finally we have the space.
The idea is appealing: You arrive to a house with toys (yay!), bicycles, bunkbed and perhaps a highchair. You get to explore an area outside the tourist tracks.
Everything based on trust. Isn't that wonderful?
I hope a family wants to come to the Arctic and our home. We have spectacular nature, 24/7 daylight, great for kids and a vibrant city. I guess I have to enlighten the fact that 3 degrees celsius in July does happen...but not often!
We hope to end up in the southwest of France, an area I know from pre-family times. But maybe we'll be surprised and go somewhere else. What do you reckon, will we make it?
