Who we are

  1. We are a couple in our early 30s with a two 2 year old daughter who want to exchange in France or Italy summer 2010. We will be travelling with her grandparents and my 2 brothers + partners and young babies. We have exchanged once before in Vancouver and really enjoyed the freedom of having our own base in a different city- the sooner the whole world catches on to this idea the better! We can consider non-simultaneous. My parents' house 30 minutes north of Belfast in Northern Ireland will also be available for swap if anyone would like to explore both countries in one trip. Their reference number is 20670.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Glasgow's West End is home to The University of Glasgow, two of the city's largest parks, the recently refurbished Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and a huge array of shops, cafes and restaurants. The flat is a 5 minute walk from the Botanic Gardens, which plays host to many events and exhibitions throughout the summer including outdoor performances of Shakespeare plays and Byres Rd, the main shopping area of the west end. Bus links to the city centre are located 50 metres from the front door (20 minute bus journey), and there is also an underground station on Byres Rd (10 minutes to city centre). Perfect for exploring the city, this is also an ideal base for exploring Scotland's beautiful lochs and mountains, with Loch Lomond (commonly known as 'the gateway to the Highlands') only a 30 minute drive away from the West End. Glasgow also has excellent transport links to other Scottish cities (trains to Edinburgh depart hourly and take only 45 minutes) and is, therefore, an excellent base for visiting the Edinburgh festival without having to pay the inflated room rates charged in Edinburgh throughout the summer! Stirling (home of the Wallace Monument), historic Perth and Dundee are all easy day-trips from Glasgow.
