We are lawyers with 3 children ages 23, 20 and 14. We enjoy photography, movies and sports among other things. We have one international, month long home exchange under our belt. We'd love to repeat our experience again this year.
We could possibly be traveling with an adult caregiver. We have a couple of outdoor/indoor self-sufficient cats that could stay at the home or be moved during the exchange.
Car exchange is possible.
Would consider small pets on a case by case basis
City wide health club membership possibility
