A July 2001 trip
to Montreal by digsvillelady
Quote: When JazzFest (Montreal) rolled around once again, my husband, Joe, daughter Lily (5) and I sent off for our cozy (temporary) apartment in the coolest neighborhood in Montreal while our host stayed at our pad in Hoboken, New Jersey!
It's really quite simple: you exchange your house/apartment with someone in another state or country for a mutually agreeable period of time. We have swapped our home in Hoboken, NJ, for periods of time as short as a weekend up to a whole summer!
Highlights: no costs of course, the comfort of a "real" home, and last but not least traveling as if you live in a place!
When traveling we like to use our feet and mass transit, you get to see more and have the opportunity to embrace the neighborhood.
