When we went to western Canada, it was the bay season and so the bears were out. Wherever we went hiking, the rangers warned us to be careful. Sellers encouraged us to buy a pepper spray but we refused. Except that during a hike, we heard some noise and we were really scared so remembering the ranger's words "make noise", we ended up hiking by shaking a bunch of keys to signal our presence while in the other hand, in the absence of pepper spray ... the deodorant was ready to be used!
Home exchange is really a life philosophy which emphasizes values that tend to be lost: trust, sharing, open-mindedness, host members with pleasure and rejoicing.
