The book says,
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.
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
