The exchange party

Both David and Ellie are professionals (education and finance) and are experienced world travellers. Dave has now taken early retirement meaning for the first time in 40 years he can vacation outside of the school terms! Hooray for new horizons and new opportunities! We have considerable experience of home exchanges in USA and Europe and particularly enjoy being part of the real world rather than being in the isolated bubble of a hotel suite or a holiday rental. With two home exchanges pending and a trip to India planned in early 2018 we are already looking for opportunities in 2018 including longer term exchanges. Forward planning and optimism prevail!
