- Christine VP, Sales (40)
- Donna Retired (68)
Hello from Sunny San Diego County!
My name is Christine and I am a 38 year old single female, adventure seeker who loves to travel! My home is very clean and organized and spacious, with all the comforts. This is my primary home and it is important to me that someone treats my home as I will treat theirs, with respect and responsibly. I love animals and have a dog that will be staying with a friend while I am away. I work full time (VP of a staffing firm) and will work at times remote/telecommute while on vacation, all I need is internet access in the home.
I will be traveling with my mom; her name is Donna and she is 66 and retired, who is also a worldwide traveler! In the past year we have traveled to 14 countries. We are nonsmokers and prefer a nonsmoking home to swap, my mom is allergic to smoke.
We are planning trips for 2015 (and possibly late year 2014), please reach out with your offers! We have confirmed a second house swap for this June to Finland! Your suggestions on local shops, dining, and experiences will be welcomed! We in turn will provide recommendations and referrals on local activities, dining options and anything else that will be helpful!
Love to enjoy (within reason of course!) fun activities. Have enjoyed zip lining through the Alaskan rain forest, parasailing in Hawaii, snorkeling and snuba in Mexico, swimming with dolphins in Jamaica, indoor rock climbing in Iceland, and local fun like a biplane ride on the coast, kayaking, fishing, camping, boogie boarding, cooking classes, etc.
Each trip has something fun and unique to offer, love to see the historic sites, castles, churches, wineries, local tours through home made specialties, great tours in Scotland of cashmere factory, etc.
My wife and I spent a couple of weeks here last year. Having already got to know the owner, it was nice to then fly out. During our time there some of our relatives stayed over (family wedding!!). This is a lovely house...great to sit outside for breakfast, lunch and dinner!!! Very easy to visit places from...I actually did a parachute jump from the local airfield! Beautifully set out...nice air con for the summer. I can only recommend this as a good exchange...and it was nice to host before we flew out.
My mom and I had a fabulous trip last year and staying with Keith and Janet was a true highlight! They are both very gracious and we could not have felt more at home. Their house is simply lovely and even better than the pictures! We stayed with them for a few days before they left for our home in California and it was a real pleasure getting to know them both. They are always welcome to come back for a visit! Just the best experience!!! The pictures show the sunset from the backyard and Hereford Cathedral downtown, beautiful!
