To our European Friends

How would you like to visit Southwestern Ontario Canada, next summer with your only expense being your air fare?

You would have use of our home & car, plus assistance from our friends and neighbors (if you want it) at no cost.

The house is a fully renovated 1937 brick two storey with two bedrooms and an inground swimming pool.
It’s located one hours drive from Toronto and Niagara Falls, and 1.5 hour drive to the US Border.

We live withing walking distance of two downtowns, the twin cities of Kitchener-Waterloo

All you need to do is offer the same in return and as a result, both our families would be able to visit another part of the world relatively inexpensively.

I understand that this concept may be foreign to some as ones home is ones castle.

Our family is not too hung up on material possessions and don’t mind sharing things with someone we trust.

I would even be prepared to add the motorcycles in the swap but fully understand that some folks may share everything but their motorcycle and perhaps their significant other.

If you’re interested in exploring this idea, please send me a pm.

There is certainly no harm and looking into this, is there?

Sincerely
PP

How about a trip to Texas? It was (and some may say STILL) a nation.

One of the things that we like about it (other than the lower cost) is that you get to live in a community or area that is not just for tourists.
So you shop for food in the local stores, visit the local pub, and really get a feel for life in that particular area.

Sounds like a great way to soak in the local communities! I wish I could get away for 7 days straight, forget about the whole summer!!!
