We often wonder: "Why would anyone want to come to Brantford?" It's hard to imagine why anyone living in Paris or St. Petersburg would want to spend time in our town. But then, again and again, we are surprised by the number of people, living in what we consider "exotic places", want to do just that! I guess we are too close to the place in which live to appreciate its attractiveness to others.
Recently we received an invitation from a couple living in the heart of New York city to consider a home exchange with them. We are now in the process of working out the details of that possibility. Imagine, living in that exciting and vibrant city for a period of several weeks! But the other people are probably saying the same thing: "Imagine, living in Brantford with its hiking trails, wild life, proximity to vineyards and live theatre, fishing, sailing, golf, for a period of several weeks"
The point is: Don't pre-judge the possibilities of a home exchange.
