Member description
Traveler in love with life. We are expatriate family from Serbia and Croatia. We have been living in Jordan then US for same period, overlanding Patagonia for several months and now we are back in Jordan. We never did home exchange before but me and my husband met while couchsurfing years ago. We are still active in hosting travelers in our home, where ever it is, and sharing experiences. We have our apartment in Aqaba and coastal home in Croatia. We are experienced travelers and world explorers. While we were a couple, we enjoyed traveling by motorcycle around Europe or sailing around beautiful Croatian islands. Everything has changed now with three kids, but not our passion for traveling. Luckily, our boys share the same feeling. We appreciate getting to know local community, nature and local food (and wine). We are spontaneous, calm and smiling family looking for new adventures. Hosting is my first choice always as it gives us possibility to share more than just home.

"When global situacion let us, we would finally want to go visit my cousin and his family in Auckland. It's hard to make any plans at the moment, but it should be during school holidays, december/january, probably not in 2021."
