I'm a freelance translator that can work from anywhere so I like to take the opportunity to stay for 4-6 weeks somewhere else, doing "normal" life and getting to know a new culture.
I've already done a few exchanges, mainly in Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires, and a couple in Europe. In October I'll be doing my first one with PLU.
I normally travel on my own, so I'd like to exchange with a central flat where I can easily meet new people, go for a coffee and socialise a bit easily without having to use a car.
I prefer exchanging with primary homes, as I really like the feeling of being in a real home. I almost can only do simultaneous exchanges, as this is my only flat, but occasionally my flat may be available for around 1 week while I visit my parents on go on holidays.
