We are 2 adults and 2 children age 3 and 5. We love travelling and getting to know people and culture.
We care about our environment and are always looking for ways to travel eco-friendly. House swapping relates very much to what we love: getting to know other places in a more local way, opening up to others & sharing. We want our children to experience other places, by being respectful to nature, people, belongings and open to the foreign.
