Remember that Australia's winters are not severe like they can be in Europe. Melbourne does not have snow and maximum temperatures rarely get into single figures ( 5 - 9 degrees Celsius).
USA January - May/June 2017: NYC, PHILADELPHIA, EAST COAST, SAN FRANCISCO ETC ESPECIALLY EAST COAST BUT NOT JULY - AUGUST
Ideally, a stay of one to three weeks or even longer can be considered at each location. If you are planning to travel around as I am you may be keen on a shorter stay.
I answer all emails. And I am open to other suggestions of where I should visit in Europe and North America and Asia !!!!
Every corner brings a new adventure. I am also prepared to consider non-simultaneous/hospitality exchanges.
I know some people say they want to visit Australia for our summer as winter is too cold. Melbourne's winters are NOT like the cold in northern Europe. It is closer to a Mediterranean climate.
For those who love good wines, fine foods, cultural and sporting events and magnificent scenery, or just a good relaxing place to visit then beautiful, cosmopolitan Melbourne is a hidden jewel - a must.
Close too to scenic places such as the Great Ocean Road, penguins at Phillip Island, wineries in the Yarra Valley, Wilson's Promontory, the historic goldfields, etc.
I am now an 'experienced' exchanger with 32 exchanges completed.

Currently the second bedroom is set up as the study.
A comfortable sofa bed (lounge with fold-out bed) is also provided in the study for a third person. If there is a fourth person I also have an inflatable mattress which is very comfortable too.
