An unusual travel anecdote?

I crossed the Atlantic Ocean in a sailing boat alone with my wife. We slept very little and there were a lot of storms, we were quite worried. It was very good preparation for children!

If you were an animal, which one would you be and why?

A migratory bird, to have the pleasure of traveling the world and the equally great pleasure of returning home.

Tell us about your best experience as a member of HomeExchange.

I hosted a Spanish family at my house this summer. When I arrived home, the house was immaculate, they had left us gifts and an adorable note, in which they wrote that their kids thought it was the best vacation of their lives. The joy that you experience hosting is even more precious than when you are welcomed as a guest.
