My family and I are looking to visit Edmonton, Alberta Canada during Christmas and New Year's. I am originally from the Edmonton area, so I am familiar with the Edmonton winters and am willing to shovel your walks of snow. If you choose to swap with us we would like to include a car in the exchange.
WE could stay with family when in Alberta, but we would like to have our own space so that we do not become too much of a burden on our family.
Our family consists of 4. I am a Science teacher at the local high school. I grew up on a farm close to Ryley AB, 100km to the East of Edmonton. My wife is a NZer and she is training to become a teacher. We have two wonderful daughters, 8 and 10, and they would be coming with us. They are well behaved and tidy. They were born in NZ and have never experienced a white Christmas.
So if you want to escape the Alberta winter for the Christmas period, consider an exchange with us.
