Something about ourselves
We are a couple in our early 60's who love home exchange. Helen is a school teacher, and I own a balloon decorating business. We love to travel, and believe that home exchanging is a great way to immerse ourselves in local culture, activities and community life. It's a fantastic way to get to know a place from the inside out. We love to hike, bike, visit museums, go antiquing, and exploring. We have experienced several fantastic, successful exchanges over the last 4 years and look forward to many more. Our condo is available for exchange most weeks June thru early Dec 2013 and June thru early December 2014. Please be assured that we will care for your home as if it were our own.
