During summer 2009, we experimented the home exchange principle for the first time. We think ourselves very lucky to have started this adventure with Paul and Trish, who welcomed us the very day before they were leaving for France... They took time to introduce us to some of their neighbours, to drive us around to show us the main shops, restaurants, etc. Paul and Trish are both very welcoming, warm and sincere. We had a great evening with them... It was almost sad to see them go the day after. We spent a really nice time in their large and comfortable house, nested in the woods, in the heart of New England. We could visit the area (wichich is perfect for nature and sports lovers), aswell as Cape Cod, Boston and New York... Their friends and neighbours were as charming and welcoming as Paul and Trish ; They immediatly "adopted" us as members of their friendly group and we shared nice and funnny evenings with them. We really hope we'll see all of them again sooner or later... This first home exchange and first time in the United-States was definitively successful and we surely advise and recommend exchanging with Paul and Trish.
