Trip Report Santa Fe Home Exchange - Three Wks, from start to finish

Jump to last reply

We are almost a wk in to our 30th home exchange, this time Santa Fe, New Mexico.

It's a trip that was planned about six months ago, with the written agreement, we would each drive to our home exchangers' home. In our case, it meant a 13 hr drive from Southern California. As we approached our prospective trips, there appeared to be snags on both end, out home exchangers had some health issues, and on our end, nothing calamitious until a few days before we were due to leave. First our ever trusty cleaning women decided on a well-deserved holiday, second problems two plumbing problems in two days, both of course on the weekend, and most dramatically, my husband, N walked unknowingly onto a fast moving treadmill at the local gym, catapaulting him onto the floor with lots of bruises and a horrendous thud. Fortunately, he is fine, though he has tons of cuts and abrasions.
