Who we are

  1. My name is Heather, I retired at 58 years buti still do a little SupplyTeaching as there is a shortage of ASN / Special Needs Teachers. I really enjoy travelling and consider myself to be a friendly people person who loves life. I would like to exchange with similarly minded people. My first Home Exchange was in 1996 when I spent 12 months teaching in ADELAIDE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA. My final teaching post was in Wonderful Orkney but the wild climate did not agree with my health. In 2013/4 I spent 6 months in the Antipodes, and in 2014/15 I was in the Caribbean for 3 months. My home is now ready and organised to exchange with like minded people. As an experienced home exchanger and a caring human being. I will take excellent care of your home and expect you to take care of mine. So let's make contact and give each other another new life experience in each others countries! I'm willing to listen to your suggestions and to accommodate your dates. Scotland is a busy wee country during June, July and August. Come earlier and experience the country with all it's wonderful festivals when there are less tourists about e.g January Celtic Connections in Glasgow: February / March RUGBY 6"s in Edinburgh; March / April - Numerous Arts / Book Festivals and events on all over. Check out 'The Guide to Scotland"s Festivals for 2015 and 2016 - LIST.CO.UK/festival!'. All the best with your next Home Exchange.
