Hi! We're Bill and Lisa. We're a family of 3 (including a 10 month old infant- will be 1 yr. old on 12/29/07). We're both account executives for our family owned business, and enjoy traveling, and outdoor activities. We like big cities as well as country settings. We both speak English. We're 39 and 47 years old, and have been married for 3 years. We're both non-smokers and only light social drinkers. We are very neat and tidy and like things kept clean. We have a 4 lb. Hairless Chinese Crested dog, but you don't have to care for her if you prefer not to, as we have someone who can watch her while we're away. We're very responsible, careful and respectful of other's belongings and homes, and will definitely take excellent care of anyone's home who wants to exchange with us, and we expect the same in return. I'm a bit of a neat and cleaning freak, but in a case of exchanging homes, that's probably a good thing!
We have never done a home exchange before, but we're VERY excited to try it out! It sounds like such a great way to see other parts of the world, and get to know people in other countries. Bill was in the US Navy and has seen many parts of the world, but I (Lisa) have never been outside of the US except to Canada and Jamaica, so I'm really excited to visit new places. We're hoping this works out to be our annual type of vacation each year, and we look forward to hearing from you soon!
