In this particular year, we've had to change the way we live and it has given us opportunities for us to slow down and appreciate more what we sometimes take for granted. Many of us have also changed the way we travelled and became tourists in our own countries and regions and in doing so, made many unexpected discoveries.

Discover HomeExchange

As you know, home-exchanging is already a form of responsible travelling. But we can always do more good through the choices we make, including choosing to travel to less touristy destinations to move away from mass tourism. And we believe that we can always inspire others!

So let us know...
What's your favourite non-touristic discovery that you've made this year?

How can you participate?

Think about a non-touristy destination that you know and love - it can be somewhere around your home, or it could be somewhere you discovered during a trip thanks to recommendation by locals. Then,

  1. Go to this post
  2. Share in the comment your best picture of the place (it should be a picture taken by YOU, not a picture from the internet!) along with the location of the place and what you love about it!*

It's that easy!

*It can be anything! Is it the gorgeous views or the peaceful sounds of nature? Or maybe it's how the place seems so untouched by time? Or is it a place that reminds you of your childhood?

How long will the contest last?

The contest will run between 27 September and 4 October. Only entries shared as indicated above between these dates will be considered valid for the competition.

How do we choose the winner?

The photo with the most number of likes on this page wins so you know what to do ๐Ÿ˜‰

And now (maybe more importantly)... What do you win?

You'll win some HomeExchange goodies (all sustainable, of course!) along with 150 GuestPoints to help you organise your exchanges!

We canโ€™t wait to see what you share with us!
