We both enjoy going to concerts, especially those feature choral groups or chamber music. Glenn enjoys fly fishing but this is rarely a focus when we travel together.
We were contacted by our host in the beginning of april 2013. And just four weeks later we were on the plane to Chapel Hill, USA. All the preparations were easily made and resulted in agrements for a house and car-exchange. We were received by Glenn and Judy and had diner together. The contact was very friendly and we felt right at home already. Glenn and Judy have a beautiful and comfortable home in a nice quiet area. We also were allowed to spend a week in their fantastic House in the mountains at Blowing Rock. It was our first experience with North Carolina and the USA. We loved every day of our trip. During the Exchange, we have kept in touch with each other and we got suggestions for our stay. Also they involved friends to help us. Due to their advice we were able to visit the theatre and to attend a baseball game. Both the houses of Glenn and Judy are very comfortabel and agreable to live in. And the region offers lot of possibilyties for a visit. We find ourselves lucky to have exchanged with first time exchangers Glenn and Judy. Back at our own place we found our home and car in perfect order. We highly recommend them for an exchange. Thanks Glen and Judy for everything, hope to meet you both again sometime, somewhere. Happy homeexchange, warm greetings from Curly & Jan
We exchanged with at our hosts lovely cottage in the Netherlands for three weeks in May 2013. This was our first formal exchange and our hosts were very good at helping us learn how to establish the foundation of a good exchange: proper understanding of the expectations through emails and written agreements. Our hosts arrived for the exchange the evening before we left, but we felt that we knew them very well already. We provided an additional first hand orientation and worked out the final details of the exchange. When we arrived at the Amsterdam airport we were met by a driver they had arranged for us. Their cottage is about 1.25 hours from the airport, in a delightful country setting on the edge of a large nature area called the Veluwe. The cottage is quiet, very clean and comfortable. Our hosts provided good information about the working of the cottage and good maps (their cottage also serves as a B&B for much of the year). Each day we set out in their car (we also made a car exchange) to see some sights - sometime big cities (Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht), sometimes smaller cities and towns in the country, sometimes special attractions like windmills, castles, or sailing ships. We enjoyed the museums - even those of the smaller cities - and local markets. We got to know the nearby cities of Haderwijk and Nunspeet, where we did much of our shopping, very well. We concluded our trip by visiting Friesland where a young women we know was getting married to a local boy. It was a wonderful event around which we built visits to fish mongers, genever makers, and other specialties of the country. We corresponded with our hosts throughout our visit and found our car (washed and full of gas) and homes and yard in excellent condition upon our return. What a wonderful introduction to HomeExchange.
