My name is Kent, my wife is Joelle and we have two kids who grew up between Portland and the island of Martinique in the French Caribbean. I am a restaurateur who was also the Riedel Wine Glass rep for the Caribbean between 2006-2012. My wife is a top-notch real estate agent here in Portland.
We are interested in both spur of the moment weekend exchanges as well as longer-term exchanges. We would also consider shipping you a kid for a month to work on a language in exchange for hosting one of yours for an equal term. I am a pilot with a plane and so anything within 1000 miles is a viable weekend trip for us.
June 12 — September 28, 2014
any exchange in France from 1 to 4 weeks in duration would be considered!
As food and wine people, we love going to places with mom-and-pop sized restaurants rather than chain restaurants. Sitting in a cafe and watching locals is my idea of heaven. My wife's fantasy is to follow the men's tennis tour through the clay court swing of the Med leading up to the French Open. My kids are very happy sitting on a beach (as is my wife) but would prefer to have breakfast, lunch and dinner served on a never-ending roller coaster.
