Trip report splendid Sydney home swap
Home swap in Sydney "We spent a splendid two weeks at Sheena's and Robert's beautiful and comfortable home in North Sydney. We enjoyed the view and the large variety of birds visiting the surrounding trees. Our hosts provided us with lots of neighbourhood information and excellent suggestions of hikes to do and beaches to visit. It was easy to get from their home to Sydney to explore all the things that beautiful city has to offer. This was the first stop of a five month journey through Australia and we could not have imagined a better start. Thank you Sheena and Robert." - Rolf & Mona

   Home swap in the UK

"Jumping for joy on the beach at St. Ives, Cornwall while on a home exchange last summer." Fiona (UK)
Greenland Dock 
"Greenland Dock: As New Zealanders our house swap took us to London where we were delighted to find ourselves staying in amid the docks of the South Bank. What could be better than a summers evening, an English pub just yards from our own front door, and dinner on the terrace with the lights of London reflecting off the water? Perfect!"  Jackie (NZ)

Home swap in Exeter, Devon
"On our swap in Exeter, Devon which we loved; photo of son Ben in Exeter town centre." Karen (UK)
BBC1 'Home Away from Home' home swap series now on
For this series, like the first series broadcast last year, the programme makers matched participants and arranged outings for them. Those taking part didn't know where they would be going (all swaps were in the UK), what the home would be like, or what they might be doing before their televised short swap took place. This is not quite like a 'real' home swap when participants make their arrangements directly and know exactly where they are going, but it is an interesting take on the idea of swapping homes. If you took part in a programme, please let us know about your experiences. Click here to watch the series live or on iPlayer
