Come on in. Stay for a few days. I’ll show you around and you can experience North Carolina from a local perspective.
Two days ago, I posted on Facebook that I was interested in visiting the Grand Cayman and within the hour a reader offered for me to stay at her condo on Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman! It was a dream situation and I sat there shaking my head at the kindness of others. I’m going to do it and it’s going to be awesome. And the unbelievable part, I’m staying there for free. The situation left me thinking on a grand scale.
I’d like to host a person, a couple, or a family at my home in Charlotte, North Carolina. We have a large, 4 bedroom house with two extra guest bedrooms. We live about twenty minutes outside of the city and we’re close to a beautiful lake called Lake Norman. We’ve only lived in North Carolina for less than two years but we’ve learned of all the best places to experience the culture. We want to show you around and immerse you in the environment. But we need to act fast because we’re planning on moving to California and we might not have the same space available for an opportunity like this. January or February would definitely work. Do you have vacation coming up? Maybe free-time? Why not spend it in Charlotte, North Carolina and I’ll give you the real tour of the area. I’m sure my press contacts would be willing to help us out with a few extra tickets or behind-the-scenes adventures too.
In exchange, we’d like for you to host us for the same amount of time at your house. Most likely, it will just be Athena (2 years old) and I with a possibility of Darren joining us if the situation was right. We want to explore the world and see it from a non-tourist perspective. Doesn’t it sound like an opportunity of a life-time? Let’s make it a reality.
I can’t think of a better way to truly experience another location. It doesn’t matter where you live, near or far, or how old or young you are, we’d love to chat about the possibilities. It’s like home exchange on steroids. It’s an exchange of culture and a creation of family around the world.
If you think it’s something of interest, send me an email at [email protected] and we can chat further.
I’ll show you mine if you show me yours.
Maybe you’re not available for travel, but you know someone who is. Please share around. Let’s make friends around the world and share our experiences with others.
