Bonjour from France
We're a family of four. Franck and Carole Wendy work both for the IT industry. We have two adorable, well behaved daughters (10 years old) who will be travelling with us. Our passion is travelling and discovering new cultures and civilizations. We think that home exchange is such an amazing way to go on vacations, as we've already done it many times.
We had a wonderful home-exchange from 19-23 april 2014. The house was clean and nice, the RER-station was near, so in about 20 minutes we were in the centre of Paris. We liked the "instruction video's" that guided us with how certain things work, and the brochures they gathered for us. We also liked the families hospitality in the preparation and in our contacts during our stay. We really recommend this family to the home-exchange community! Roberto and Geerjanne
We had a great time in Utrecht with our kids, it was our first visit of Nederland, the land of tulips (and bicycles :-). We've been to museums around, walkind along canal. Life was good. The farm nearby our hosts was really fun. Our kids loved it, you can stroke animals like rabbits, goats, cows. At the time there was also a carnival for the kids (and adults too). Eventually we've met our home exchangers. Thanks to Geerjanne and Roberto for their welcoming in their home. And thanks also to Johanneke for her help while we were there. Carole and Franck
We had a great time in Sevran at the home of Carole and Franc. Nice house and area, and very nice people! We could use the extensive technical gadets and toys of their home, got very practical multi-media based (!) instructions. Daily commuting to downtown Paris from Sevran takes some time and money by the train. However, it is a god location to visit places around Paris, if you travel by car or do a car exchange. We got our home back as it was newly cleaned up! It was great to welcome Carole and Franc back at our place for an evening visit next year! We can recommend exchanging with them.
We had a good time with Gyorgy and Adrienn's house. Our were very happy with the visits. Spas and pools in town. We had many hungarian dishes throughout our journey, yummy. Especially Langos, not good for your shape, but so tasty. We went to Dracula's cave, the kids were a bit afraid, but that was fun. And of course all the bridges, illuminated at night, are not to be missed. And finally we met each other on our second trip to Budapest. Thus we had a nice tea time together. We recommend exchanging with Gyorgy's family.
It was our fist exchange experience and everything went perfect. The house is cozy and clean. It's not far away from the train station and even though the journey to the center takes some time we were really pleased by Paris. Paris is so multicultural and it was interesting experience to be a part of it for a while. Twice a week there was a market in the district where we used to do the shopping. You go there to buy three bananas and you're coming back with bags of fruits and other things :) All the best and many perfect exchanges in the future!
It was a nice exchange with Kacper's family. Everything was ready for us, and we enjoyed polish lifestyle (one more time). We're happy to give them their first homeexchanger experience. The backyard our of hosts delivers very good rapberries, that we ate from time to time. We did like very much the shower style. Thanks to his sister for welcoming us. Krakow is place to visit, lots of good food. We found many Bar mlecny around (on the internet) where it's not too touristic with only polish people having lunch or breakfast. Food is good, so are the prices. Some basic polish language could be needed there. And downtown, the old town is very beautiful, many streets shops. At the time there was a Pierogi Festival that we didn't miss, lot of different taste. Also not far from Krakow, Wieliczka salt mine worth visiting. And Auschwitz and Birkenau for a historic visit (not with kids though). We recommand exchanging with them.
