Hi. We currently live in Pasadena, CA and Barolo is a 2nd home. Made more sense as a 2nd home when I lived in London (1997-2008) but I love my tower and never want to give it up. We rent it out from Feb to Nov but also love to use it for home exchanges and have done many over the last 4 years. We have flexibility with our work so are open to ideas for swaps. Our son is only 3.5 so we still have time to travel lots before he starts school when he is 5. I am originally from San Diego, CA though also lived in New York for 7 years and have family outside of Manhattan. My husband is Italian, from Palermo, and he is enjoying his new life here in sunny California.
