  • April 19, 2018

Then fortuitously, last summer we connected with another home exchange family from Sayulita and agreed to a home swap. After a week in Sayulita I can definitely say it lives up the hype. It’s beautiful, safe,…

Home exchange

If you have ever wondered about doing a home exchange this post is for you! We have officially made it to the year point as Home Exchangers. In 2017 I signed us up for HomeExchange.com.

Five Days in London

  • October 4, 2017

The last time I was in London I was 22. Right after graduation from college some friends and I loaded up backpacks, bought a Eurorail pass and flew to London as the first stop of our journey.

My husband flew to London to spend some time…
