It’s been quite a worrying and surreal few months. Although everyone has been doing their very best to turn negatives into positives (baking sourdough bread, brushing up on a new language, struggling into yoga positions, or just binge watching Netflix), lockdown has been a tad tough and I know many of us are itching to plan our next home swap getaway. One things for sure, that first post lockdown trip is going to be extra special!
It seems likely that for many of us, our first post-lockdown trip will be a getaway within our own country. We're starting to see signs that “staycation” home swaps will be a very popular option in the second half of this year. Over the last couple of weeks, there has been a gradual but very encouraging uptake in new members signing up to Home Base Holidays - the majority of which have noted in their destination request that they are looking for a home exchange within their own country.
