We would be interested in 1-2 longer swaps and 2 weekend swaps per year... Usually looking for International exchanges during New Orleans Jazz Festival.
While a lot of locals flee New Orleans during Mardi Gras, Christmas, Halloween, we usually stay in the city so, in most cases, would not be able to accommodate exchanges during that time.
Due to work schedules, the maximum exchange that we can consider at this time is 2-3 weeks.
Open to most Cities with good transit and train options. Good Food, Nightlife are also important in a destination.
Unfortunately, Suburban or Beach homes usually do not fit with our travel style.
In the US, can accomodate long weekends with shorter notice. Interested in visiting NY, SF, Chicago, DC, Seattle, Portland, Boston, or other big cities
Partnered couple (Matt and Kevin) of 9 years. We both work from home in the technology fields. We enjoy travel, dining and social activities. We enjoy food, drink, travel, entertaining friends and family, movies & meeting new people.
We usually travel with a small group of friends or family so usually look to swapping larger properties. However, we .
can be swayed by small properties with great locations.
