We love to travel! Who doesn’t, right? Balazs and I used to travel a lot but due to our busy schedule, lately we haven't had a chance do so as much as we would like to…But that is something we are working on! For the past few months or so I keep hearing about house swaps. As much as I love my place and I don't want strangers in it, I find this whole idea perfect in many respects. You not only get a taste of the real life in that city you visit, but you don’t have to pay for a hotel or a rental property, so this really allows you to spend the money you saved on delicious dinners, shopping, gallery tickets and city tours. I think that next time we decide to travel somewhere we will give it a try and see...Some of my friends would be very nervous about this, but I feel I can get a good sense of the other person through their emails or calls. Sometime it is good to be a bit adventurous.
What are your thoughts on that? Have you done a house swap before?
Ps: That photo is of the famous Oia sunset in Santorini (Greece). What is your next destination?
