About Our Family

We are a family of 4 looking for a new adventure this summer. We are teachers so have the whole summer off and are open to a month long exchange or shorter exchanges. We love traveling and are thrilled with the possibility of exploring a new country. We have previously completed a house/teaching exchange in Australia and Intervac exchanges in France and Ireland. We are open to a car exchange and are happy to watch any pets our exchange family may have.
