'My best travel memories always seem to be centred around water. Swimming with elephants in Thailand, like rodeo riding! Relaxing and letting the thermal, healing waterfalls and cascades of Saturnia, Italy (used by the Romans) wash over my body! Water skiing on various lakes, etc and just generally swimming and relaxing in the water. Traveling the sand dunes in northern Brazil, stopping for a swim when the temperature dictates. Exploring the mangroves of the Amazon, in silence, in the dead of night!
Home swapping, although I haven't done it yet, is definitely going to feature in my next adventure. The people who use Home Base Holidays are friendly and my type of people. I've already made friends with members and really like what is offered. I have had numerous offers to swap and in time will!
Home exchange really seems a great way to holiday and live like a local and really absorb the culture of the people of the country. Can't wait to do it!' - Geraldine S.
