As I write this, we’re about two-thirds of the way through this year’s home swap, which is taking place near Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
We’ve done 15 home swaps overall since 2006, 14 of them multi-week trips in the summer. Since moving to Thurrott.com in January 2015, we’ve been on five home swaps, including this year. We visited Stockholm, Sweden (with a side-trip to Berlin, Germany) in 2018, Barcelona, Spain in 2017, Paris, France in 2016, and Lyon, France (with a side-trip to Venice, Italy) in 2015. We generally spend three weeks on these swaps, but the 2016 and 2017 swaps were just two-week visits because of other circumstances (our son heading off to college in 2016 and the family moving to Pennsylvania in 2017).
