Everything you wanted to know about home swaps

Posted on August 28th, 2009 by Laura Byrne Paquet in Home Exchanges

Well, I’m not sure if it’s everything you wanted to know about home swaps, but I’ve done my best to include lots of useful information in my recent article on home exchanging for SlowEurope.com. You’ll find interviews with home exchangers, an annotated list of some of the leading sites with European listings, and more. And don’t forget to check out the rest of the SlowEurope.com site as well–it’s full of great tips for experiencing the Continent (and the U.K.) as the locals do.
