know any host exchange sites? anyone want a free B&B in aussie?

I'm doing Germany and surrounds late September and it occured to me that I would be happy to host a family (or person) and give them free B & B if they were willing to put me up for 1 night. Hard to ensure that I'm on the up and up but you got my email address to start with.. not much but its a start. (oh yeah, i'll have my wife and maybe my parents with me)

Home exchanges are usually simultaneous -- that is, each family stays in the other's house at the same time.

But some of the home-exchange organizations also accommodate exchanges like yours, where each family hosts the other. The one I used, HomeLink, has a special code for this type of exchange.
