We are couple with two daughters, 19 and 17 years old. Boris is a software engineer. Terri loves her job as a stay-at-home mom. Boris is a part-time keyboard player who regularly plays in local pop, funk, and reggae bands. Terri enjoys hiking, gardening and going to the theater.
We are interested in long-term exchanges that are far away from home, as well as short-term weekend getaways within driving distance from the Bay Area.
