Greetings from the Swedish west coast where sunsets are great!
We are a well-traveled family of four, mom and dad (Maria and Erik, married since 1995) and two daughters Astrid and Stina, 13 and 10 years old. We are beginners at the home exchange site: however, we have been traveling to many exciting places since our youngest member Stina was 4 years old. We started with a trip to China by then, and have since been visiting Italy many times, Paris a few times including south of France, Prague and Vienna. We also made an Inter rail trip in Europe a few years ago - very exciting!
In 2013 we spent June-August in LA and absolutely loved it! We rented a house in Westwood, and Erik was doing research at USC while Maria and the girls were exploring the beaches and tried to learn to use a skateboard:-)
We also took the opportunity to visit San Francisco, Las Vegas, Death Valley and Sequoia National Park, the latter to destinations was truly amazing!
We are a family that likes skiing and nature. Our friends would describe us as respectful to people and surroundings. Also, our children are used to new environments and are very responsible to their surroundings.
Last summer, 2014, we again went to LA, this time for 5-6 weeks. We rented a lovely house in Mar Vista and really enjoyed it.
