Hi Rebecca,
We live in Vienna, Austria. We're American "ex-pats". We will spend the first part of the summer 2013 (June & July) in the U.S. We have family in the Bay Area, and a swap at your place might be interesting for us. We have two children -- 6 years and 3 years. We've moved apartments in Vienna -- we're now on the edge of the Vienna Woods in the 17th district, not in MuseumsQuartier as listed in our profile. Still accessible to downtown, but lots of fresh air and greenery. If Austria interests you, please contact me offline via my email: jgfred@mailhaven.com.

Hi Rebecca and family!
We have an apartment in the city centre of Stockholm and would LOVE to houseswap with you! :)
My husband, our baby & I are planning to go to the US sometime this year to visit my sister and her daughter that live in Florida but were hoping to meet up somewhere else in the states.

The apartment has 1bedroom but there is a big comfortable couch in the livingroom and space for a matress on the floor if necessary. :)
We also have a small cottage in the countryside about an hour and a half from Stockholm wich you would be welcome to use aswell.
For how long would you like to travel in April?
Let me know if this could be interesting for you, in April or at another time, and I would be happy to tell you more and send some photos!

Hi there. Your home sounds amazing. I'd be very interested in swapping in July. We live in a 3 bed house in the Highlands, in Inverness Scotland. There are two double rooms and a single. We have a garden and I too can lend you a car and a bike.

There are beautiful beaches, mountains, seaside villages and walks close by, distilleries, Loch Ness and Culloden.

Hope you'd consider,

Dear Rebecca and family,
I am a long-term couchsurfer and throwing my house and place into the ring too! How fortunate you are to have so many places to choose from! You have a lovely home. I am a single mom with a very nice 15 year old son. I LOVE California. If you are EVER interested in visiting Virginia Beach Virginia, I am only 10 minutes from the ocean and could tell you about some awesome beaches. Hampton Roads is a conglomerate of several good sized cities with a lot to do. We are close to DC and 6 and a half hours from New York as well as the mountains of Virginia. Its an area with a lot going on. I am always searching for great places in this wonderful universe to visit, so anyone else reading this, keep us in mind too. Happy Travels! Lex Pittman
