- Gabriel toddler (4)
Hello from the big apple
We are a family of two. Laura is an art professor and artist. Gabe is the 21/2 year old little man of the house. We like to run, swim and play outside. We've traveled to Australia, Mexico and Puerto Rico. Looking forward to learning and exploring more of the world together.
Any time These dates are flexible
A simultaneous exchange is preferred. As a professor I have the summer months free and would be able to do a longer term exchange. One month Christmas break 19/12/14-14/1/15, one week spring break 6/3/15 - 13/3/15 and Easter Break 28/3/15 - 7/4/15. Open to traveling the rest of the year too, but for shorter stays.
I am a long distance runner (Gabe likes coming along for a ride in the jogger). I've completed many marathons and triathlons, sometimes in far off destinations.
This was our first simultaneous exchange (we've done about 3-4 other exchanges before) and it went off without a speedbump. We fell in love with the apartment right away, enjoyed the great views of lower Manhattan and the bridges. The apartment was spacious and the bed extremely comfortable. We really enjoyed the mural in the lobby! Coordinating with Laura was a piece of cake. Her place is on the lower east side, by Seward Park, and we walked many times to Greenwich Village, SoHo, Chinatown etc. Her place is a just a couple of blocks from the subway. We never had an issue with getting around. We went to our home in Belize the same day she left our Belize home and it was in perfect condition. I would highly recommend a home exchange with Laura if someone wants to visit Manhattan.
