Lifestyle

We have made three home exchanges with Intervac members in 2014 (Scotland) and in 2016 (Iceland and Spain) . We have also exchanged our home with family and friends several times.

We like nature and quiet areas. We like hiking and exploring new regions very different from where we live. Our boys like biking and reading.
