Sun in the fun next summer in Carolina!
We are a diverse group: a semi-retired couple traveling with my adult niece and her husband. We live in opposite sides of the country and cannot visit that often so the opportunity of getting together and visiting an interesting place is twice as wonderful. We are from a strong family who loves to get together, have fun, and stay close.
My interest in GB is because I would love to see and walk the land of my ancestors. The only problem is that we don't know which British Isle
country we come from! To make sure that we will see the mother land, we plan on visiting Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England via a cruise.
We would like to extend the visit by a home exchange in England, not in London, which we have visited before, but off the beaten track a bit.
We would like to experience your country as you do, not as a tourists.
(I would also like to sneak in a bit of genealogy, but don't tell my group.)
We all love history and visiting historical places, including places of literary interest since I ''were 'a English major in college (and an Anglophile). My niece and husband love to hike and engage in outdoor activities. They like cooking gourmet meals and enjoying interesting wines.
We would be respectful of your property as we hope you would be of ours. We are open to a car exchange since you would need access to an auto here. We look forward to exchange ideas and sharing information that would make your trip everything you hope it could be.
August 15 — September 18, 2014
We would like to do a home swap in conjunction with a British Isle cruise. The dates for the cruise are generally mid August to mid September so we have some flexibility but not much.
We all love history and sites of historical interest, including literary (I. e.have visited Dickens home.) Our younger members love out of door activities such as hiking. The love to cook and enjoy wine. We all love music, including British Brass bands. My husband is an avid tuba player. (We loved "Brassed Off.") We want to experience England as a Brit, not as tourists. I love genealogy and my life time quest is to find our which of the British Isles we come from. (We trace back to 1721 but our records are not intact.)
