I was delighted when the editor of Travel with a Challenge got in touch two years ago to ask me to write an article about home exchange especially for older travellers, and pleased when recently asked to check the article and make any changes needed to update it. The newly updated article, 'Exchange a Home and See the World', is now available on the website. It is very impressive when the editor of such an information rich site takes the time to ensure that all previously published articles are still fresh and up-to-date. A quote from Travel with a Challenge sums up the site's purpose:
'While showcasing both well-established and freshly-minted alternative travel opportunities throughout the world, this website and its Web magazine promise its readers practical advice and plenty of nuts-and-bolts information to encourage active, educational, value-added vacationing suitable for men and women over 50. The one thing you won’t find is an excuse to stay home!'
And a brief quote from my article, 'Exchange a Home and See the World':
'The over 50s, often with more flexibility on dates and length of exchange than families tied by school or work holiday periods, have the broadest choice of exchange possibilities. Many prefer to exchange with others in similar circumstances, that is, avoiding families with young children if their homes are not geared to their needs. Others like to travel with grown children and grandchildren and a larger home with plenty of space invariably appeals more than cramped hotel rooms or basic vacation rental apartments.'
