When England and Europe gets snowed in, we find the number of offers to swap with us on Australia’s Gold Coast increase.
When we first joined Home Base Holidays, we were very interested to meet up with other swappers just to see what type of folk enjoyed swapping.
When we were unable to take up a swap, for whatever reason, we decided to invite potential swappers to come for lunch or a BBQ so we could meet up and compare notes and assist them whilst they were in our area.
We have now completed 9 swaps and have entertained about 4 couples who we did not swap with and we have made some of the nicest friends doing this.
It is great when you are in a strange area to know that there is someone who belongs to the same club as you and can assist if you have any difficulties whilst in a strange country.
So Home Base Holidays has not only provided us with some wonderful swaps but also introduced us to some amazing friends.
