Where we want to go
Description of our house
We live in a quiet South Salem neighborhood on a tree-lined street with near access to a wonderful park. Our home is a spacious one with everything you need on the main level, including the large, fully renovated kitchen, laundry room, dining and living rooms, master bedroom with bathroom and an additional bedroom with queen bed if needed (it's usually used as an office), guest bathroom and office. The living room has two sofas which, with pillows removed, can be comfortable twin size beds. Downstairs is the guest room pictured, family room, billiards room and additional shop and craft rooms. The fully fenced yard is full of flowers, and berries, fruit and veggies if you come visit in summer.

Our neighborhood is quiet, and there is a large park with a playground within easy walking distance. There is a school nearby and you may hear ballgame cheering from our deck. A large grocery store is only about 5 minutes away by car, as are pharmacies, restaurants, Trader Joe's and Walmart.
Something about ourselves
We are Viv and Ed. We have two adult kids in the area, and two doggy kids that live with us (however, they won't be in the home during an exchange). Viv is a health care professional and Ed is self-employed in the auto industry. We've thought about trying home exchange for a long time, and after taking a lovely trip to Europe for the first time in 2010, we'd like to make traveling a regular part of our lives. We're adventurous and ready to see the world! We think home exchange would be the ideal way to really get to know a country and its culture, and make new friends too. Note: We're pretty well booked for travel in 2013, now looking for swaps in 2014. Non-simultaneous exchanges are possible. See listing #59678 on the Oregon Coast. Happy travels!
