Challenge Myself: Day #211 Vacation by Home Exchange

Today is Day #211 of the Just For Today Challenge. I am also integrating the Live Happy into my daily Challenge. The Live Happy Challenge for today says, exchange your home with a foreign family.

The book says,

If you've dreamed of exploring exotic European locales, sampling the cuisine, and shopping in local markets and antique stores, consider swapping your house with a foreign family. You will stay in the home of an Italian, French, Spanish, or German family and that family gets to come to your house in America and stay in your house.

Whether you want to swap for a week or a month or longer, home exchange organizations and property management companies specialize in vacation house exchanges can answer your questions and facilitate the house swapping.

Ask if the homeowner would allow you to ride the family bicycles, row the family boat, or ride the horses. The point is to not just laze around in the swapped house, but enjoy your new surroundings to the fullest and keep the exercise going.

The challenge today reminded of the movie, The Holiday. Remember when Cameron Diaz needed a vacation after a breakup so she googled vacation and went on Home Exchange. Who knew, Home Exchange is a real website.

We haven't been on a vacation for over about ten years now. Due to our job situations, this year doesn't look promising either. I am often reminded of how badly I need to vacate from all of this.

I have a work buddy who works a side job selling vacation packages. If you are interested, check out her site at Kicking The Bucket List Travel Vacations
