This new home exchange weblog is announced for the first time in the Oct/Nov issue of the newsletter, sent to Home Base Holidays members and subscribers today. Let's hope we get some visitors and feedback on the blog!
As usual there was more than enough copy to fill the newsletter. It is published on the website today as well so check it out if you haven't already received it by email. Unfortunately there are always a number of copies that don't get delivered, for lots of reasons - incorrect or out of date email addresses, spam filters, full mailboxes, etc, etc. That's the advantage of the weblog - it's not dependent on email for delivery but rather is just here whenever you want to check for updates or leave a comment!
The member feature story in this issue of Home Swappers Newsletter is on a 'wonderful double swap to Australia' by first time home exchanger, Sandie Gibson. That's Sandie's house in Cheshire, England, above. Here's a lovely quote from the article:
'I feel like a child in a sweet shop when I surf the Home Base Holidays pages; I get so excited at all the places and the wonderful opportunity of seeing the World. It's so much nicer being in a home with all the facilities, living like the locals do, than sitting in a hotel room.'
