We had many lovely photos and stories submitted in the Home Base Holidays holiday photos competition this year. The winning photo and runners-up entries have already been published but now we want to share some of the other entries too and will do so in a series of posts.
The first entry is from Marina who shared photos of her family’s first home swap in Teignmouth, Devon, England.
‘We arrived home yesterday from our first home swapping holiday in England. My husband, two children and I swapped with a couple from Teignmouth. They offered us a lovely house with a fantastic view to the sea.
We had mostly sunny weather and the whole family had so much fun playing in the waves and on the beach in Teignmouth.
The surrounding area offers many possibilities for trips and we enjoyed them by bike, train, bus, boat and on foot.’
It’s always interesting to go to somewhere completely different from home.
Marina describes her area:
‘Our wonderful area is named 3-countries-corner (Germany/Austria/Switzerland). Wangen (in photo) is a historical baroque town and healthy air resort where there are lots of choice for adventure, sports, sight-seeing, wellness and spa, nature-lovers and mountain-friends.’
Check out Marina’s lovely home exchange offer with a detailed description of the town of Wangen and local area.
