Who we are

  1. My wife and I are an academic couple in our thirties with two young girls. We are relatively free to travel long or short term even with short notice. My company has an office in San Diego, CA thus we are especially interested to visit that area for longer periods (1-4 months). We are also open to exchange houses for vacation in southern Europe for 1-2 week periods.

    We love skiing, hiking, biking and generally being outdoors as well as cooking and good food, art, sports, architecture and culture.
