We are a couple, Hélène and Vincent, and have two children: Paul, 7, and Alice, 5.
Vincent is an assistant principal in a high school and I am the manager of a shopping center in the city center.
We love many things: the sea, the beach, sailing, diving, museums, reading, walking, cycling, beautiful monuments, good restaurants, big cities, small towns, getting lost while walking ...
Before the birth of the children, we traveled a lot: California, New York, Niagara Falls, Dominican Republic, Thailand, Spain, Sweden, Italy, Netherlands, Lisbon and a lot of times Egypt, we love to go there winter to warm up and dive ;-) . But from 2021 we will try to go to the mountains so that the children learn to ski... We also went to Cairo and Sudan. Living just opposite England, we go to London several times a year and we love going to Paris (but not enough for our taste!)
Since the children were born, we slowed down a bit but this year we decided to get back to it. We want to share with them our love of travel, museum visits, pass on our passion for "I get lost in the middle of nowhere to discover things that we would never have seen on the tourist "trails".
After a first exchange in April 2019 in Paris, then a second in Saint Malo in June, we went to Montreal and Boston this summer also thanks to the house exchange. We loved it, we can't wait for the next ones to arrive.
Vincent no longer lives the week with us since the start of the school year in September 2019, we would like to spend a few weekends 3 hours away from home to find ourselves at 4 and really enjoy these moments.
Our favorite destination list is far from complete: the whole world interests us, don't hesitate!
Attention: Vincent is very allergic to cats, unfortunately we cannot go to houses where cats live (but you can come to our house... without a cat!)
We are Vincent, a principal assistant in a high school, and Helene, a shopping center manager. We have two kids: Paul, 7, and Alice, 5. They are both going to school.
We almost love everything: the sea, the beach, the nature, sailing, diving, cycling, walking, eating, reading... We love museums, getting lost somewhere and just walking to discover the city/town...
Before the birth of our two little ones, we traveled a little bit: California, New York, Niagara falls, Dominican Republic, Thaïland, Spain, Sweden, Italy and few times Egypt, we love going there in winter to get warm ;-) But from 2021, we will try to go skiing with the kids, I (Helene), will learn with them..
Since they grew up a little bit (no more naps, more patient...), we want to travel with them, to show them the beauty of nature, of cities, to make them meet people from other countries (Paul could practice its english!!) and most of all, we want to give them the virus of "i get lost lost in the middle of nowhere", it's how we enjoy the most our trips: no tourists, local people...
We have had already 4 wonderful exchanges: Paris, Saint Malo, Montreal and Boston. And we are looking forward to the next ones!
WARNING: Vincent is very allergic to cats (while i love them too much...) so we cannot go to homes with cats. But you can come to our place... without cats!
