Hi! We're Betsy & Neal from the Upper East Side of Manhattan, New York City, USA! We are experienced Home Exchangers who travel with our girls, age 16 and 14. We've been exchanging since 2013 and we've done around 25 exchanges (but have lost count!). It's a great way to see the world and make lots of wonderful new friends!
Member description
We go to Europe in the summer (we've already visited France, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Turkey, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and Czech Republic and would like to explore some place new) and Caribbean (or some place warm) in March. We've already been to Vancouver, Lake Louise and Banff, Montreal and Quebec City as well.
