Home Exchanges 2014

Jump to last reply

For those who follow my home exchange sagas, summer home exchanges are finally all set. Home exchange #56 will be in Warsaw, Poland, at the end of June. Home exchange # 57 will be Istanbul in July. The trip will finish with a small town in Northern Italy about an hour from Venice in August. A side trip to Belarus is planned between Warsaw and and Istanbul, as my maternal grandmother's family came from two villages there. I have engaged a guide for that and they will handle all of that for me. After Belarus, I leave there and fly to Istanbul from whatever city is convenient.

This series of home exchanges has had a lot of people accept this year and then cancel. There was a disappointment in "losing" Krakow (I had two families commit and then cancel--ugh), but I gained Istanbul. I tell people that, with home exchange, you get what you get and be glad of it. My goal is always to have the home exchanges in the same general area when I do more than one, but that rarely works out.
