Hi, my name is Janine and I'm a transplanted Aussie that has been living in San Diego for some time now. My dream as a little girl was to always live near the beach, now I do. I have a beautiful home overlooking the Pacific Ocean with incredible views and a scamper down to the beach and one of my favorite surf spots.
One of my passions is international travel - i have been to all corners of the world and cannot wait to see more!! I love adventure travel and meeting so many interesting people, in addition to finding and collecting that little treasure from a special trip to have in my home.
Some desired destinations are Morocco, Turkey, Egypt, Alaska, the South Island of New Zealand, and so many others. I would love to be able to share my warm and inviting home with those that want to experience Cardiff by the Sea and sunny southern California. Such a great way to experience a new city.
Definitely do not hesitate to inquire about possible exchanges. I have several close friends, both in Cardiff and La Jolla, who would be interested in home exchanges as well.
Happy travels and perhaps our paths will cross one day soon :-)
