Great exchange!We were delighted to stay at Bill and Lucille Selfridge’s home in Dumfries, Virginia, in early April 2022. All of our prior online connections were clear, inviting, and helpful, as was our arrival day greeting that included a local tour and homemade dinner along with friendly conversation. Their home is spacious, spotlessly clean, and comfortable. It provided a welcome rest between busy times in our lives, and the location was great for nearby day trips with a variety of goals (from forest walks to shopping to historical museums and sites). We had visited the nation’s capital region many times before, so concentrating closer to Dumfries was wonderful, and we didn’t need Bill and Lu’s offered transit cards, maps, and D.C. suggestions. Instead, we explored the other piles of local information that they provided! The friendly neighbors were an added bonus. This exchange was an opening step as the Covid pandemic was hopefully waning, and we looked forward to hosting them in our capital region of Victoria BC Canada later in the summer. That portion of our exchange is now completed, and we’re happy to report that they took great care of our house and car, as we had anticipated!
