The swimming pool

The house at Lake Tahoe also had a swimming pool. A private pool, just for the four of us…The whole family was excited.

We have been to the States two years before, travelled along the Californian Coast. Missed the region at Lake Tahoe. Well,  we decided to miss it. Too boring for our two teenagers.  Now, our teenagers did not care that Lake Tahoe is in the middle of nowhere. No shopping, no party, no nice restaurants, just pure nature…. unimportant…a private swimming pool!!

Me as the finance minister of the family, the planner of all holidays, had to make a decision (not before checking out for possible cheap flights…which do not exist..). …Dear Burda, thank you so much for your offer. Unfortunately the States are not on our travel list for next year… Maybe another time. …

The very first experience we made with homeexchange -beside the effort it takes to get listed: Stay on the track, restist all temptations of pools, cars, boats, gourmet kitchens if you are not really independent in time and money! We were and are not. We had a definate time slot to change, we had to do simultaneous exchange and we had a limited budget.

Our destination should be Barcelona! Exciting city, nice beaches, houses with pools available, cheaps flights from Berlin. I read dozens of profiles, marked them and wrote my very first inquiry…
