About our home

We are a family of two adults and two children ages 11 and 12 who are interested in both simultaneous and non-simultaneous exchanges and swap points. We enjoy an adventure! Europe and the US are of particular interest but anywhere new is an exciting opportunity for us to see somewhere different; some of our best trips have been to the more unexpected places!

Our house is a newly built large modern house on the outskirts of the provincial town of Jönköping (famous for 'the safety match') and situated on Sweden's 2nd biggest lake midway between the cities of Stockholm, Gothenburg and Copenhagen. We are 1,5hrs from 'Astrid Lindgrens World' which is a beautiful theme park based on the stories of the famous Swedish author; one being 'Pippi Longstocking'! The lovely surrounding countryside where we live is abundant with family friendly fresh clean lakes for swimming and sandy beaches for grilling and relaxing in the sunshine. Excellent for winter activities with nearby ski slopes which are perfect for beginners and intermediate levels. Our town has two outdoor ice-skating rinks which are free to use; you will also see plenty of people skating on lakes! The Swedish summers consist of long days of warm sunny weather and the winters are pleasantly cold, dry and snowy. Perhaps you will come and see for yourself! Unfortunately, we are unable to exchange where there is an indoor cat due to allergy.

We have had 10 exchanges and swaps since 2012. We started our adventures in Hampshire, England for the London Olympics which was followed with skiing in Swiss Alps and a delightful rural setting on the outskirts of the lovely cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh in Scotland. This was followed by stays in a beautiful architected house in sunny Tenerife, also the ever-enchanting French Alps and the never-ending beauty of Cornwall, England. Summer 2015 took us to both Paris and historic Provence. Summer 2016 took us to both Malaga and glorious Grenada in Spain with summer 2017 spent in fabulous Fermo in Italy and Rome. Our trips through Europe have inspired us to see many more interesting places that the continent has to offer. We like to be surprised!

Home-exchanging is our passion; we love every minute of being somewhere new and enjoy meeting many wonderful like-minded people along the way. We are looking forward to many more exciting trips in the future.
