Who we are

  1. We are Anabelle and Alejandro, a couple in it's 40's. I am Spanish, born in Mallorca and Anabelle is half French and half Spanish. We have a young daughter of two years named Chloe. We have spent many years together and have previously lived in Palma de Mallorca and London. 11 years ago we arrived to Barcelona and here we found a good base from which to live and work. Anabelle is a contemporary jewelry designer and I am an artist. We are an open-minded couple and since our daughter was born we think of alternatives to travel one way in which everyone is comfortable. Since 1996 almost every year we travel to Southeast Asia. I travel constantly for my work worldwide.Traveling is essential for us. We had a flat exchange once and the experience was very positive. We think it's a wonderful way to discover other places from a different perspective and we are excited about the upcoming. We are also availble for swaps
