We just received a testimonial from Lisa Linde from Amsterdam who did her first home swap in Barcelona! She has a cozy studio apartement in a charming neighbourhood in Amsterdam and explains to us that her experience was absolutely positive and she is already looking forward to her next home exchange. In Knok, we are really happy and excited that more people are discovering the fascinating advantages in a home exchange holiday. Take a look at what Lisa shared with us!
"In May we did a non-simultaneous exchange with a very nice family in Barcelona, Spain. Being it our first exchange, I felt a little nervous and uncomfortable at the beginning. But my exchange partner was very friendly and helpful. He always replied promptly to my emails and even had time for a talk on the phone before we left for Barcelona. We arrived in Barcelona just before they left so we had the chance to meet our exchange partners. As soon as we entered the house and met them, we felt immediately at ease and at home! It totally matched the nice impression I already had from the website and our conversation by phone. It was as if we made new friends by initiating this exchange. I think it is a wonderful system and am already looking forward to the next exchange!
The apartment was perfectly located! Luckily for us, not in the noisy area of the old town, but in a nice neighborhood close to the Sagrada Familia. It was spacious and quiet and it had a wonderful roof terrace! Our hosts had been very thoughtful. They left us a list with nice tips on things to do and a few suggestions for nice shops and restaurants close to the apartment. Thanks to them we went to a few wonderful restaurants with excellent food!"
