This was my third home exchange trip down under based entirely on home exchanges. The other two trips included NZ. This one did not. No offense, NZ, but this is just the way it worked out. In 9...
As those of you who are regular home exchangers know, I am a convinced home exchanger. In July-August 2012 I did two home exchanges in Scandinavia paired with a pretrip visit to the fiords of...
When you travel a lot, sometimes a trip is the trip from hell. Such was my recent home exchange in Rome. No, it wasn't the apartment I exchanged for. It wasn't the girlfriend I traveled with (I...
I travel mostly through home exchanges and this trip was no exception. I arrived in Turkey August 6th, met my home exchangers and took off for Cappadocia for 4 nights (Fairy Chimney Inn). The hotel...
As those of you who read my trip reports know, I am a thorough devotee of home exchanges. Many of those are long haul trips, but occasionally you get a bonus home exchange closer to home. These are...
I had a wonderful time in Ottawa, Canada, home exchanging in the western part of the city in July 2011. I had a fine location in a lovely townhouse near the intersection of two main roads. I took a...
In August 2010 I was fortunate to have a home exchange in Christchurch, New Zealand. In view of the series of very damaging earthquakes which began just after I left I was fortunate to travel when I...
This was part of two back to back home exchanges in Melbourne, Australia, and Christchurch, NZ. The NZ trip will be written up separately. I had been to both countries before on exchanges in 2008...
I was in Tucson for an annual symposium for tour directors. After the tour, one of the symposium participants arranged for an 8 day package tour with Argonaut Tours to Mexico's Copper Canyon. This...
I urge all of you to read my report on my home exchange in Finland before reading this report. My home exchange ended when my exchange family returned. I had always intended to spend a few days in...
If you don't like unstructured travel, you would not like a trip with me. I do a lot of research in advance and have an idea of what I would like to see, but what I actually do once I arrive is...
This trip was a year in the making. It started with an offer from Brisbane, Australia, through Homelink, a well known home exchange site. After I locked in that exchange, I put up a request on...
The first part of this lengthy trip was reported as Fiji and Australia 2008 and can be accessed under that title on independenttraveler.com. When I arrived from Brisbane in Auckland on August 29th,...
I just got back from my 12 days in Salzburg, Austria. Naturally, it was a home exchange. I haven't been on the board for a while but some of you may recall I do a lot of home exchanging. I had the...
From July 5, 2007, to August 1, 2007, I was based in Vienna, Austria, on my 33rd home exchange with the H Family. The apartment was located on Sechsenhauserstrasse near the Gumpendorferstrasse U-bahn...
This was an elderhostel tour as opposed to my usual method of travel in Europe -- home exchanges combined with independent travel using the home exchange house as a base. I have to say that the...
