Area: Washington StateWe are a family of 5 living in Seattle on the west coast (Washington State). Hector is from Mexico and Krisanne grew up in Minnesota, USA. We have three boys ages 7, 5 and 2. Seattle is a beautiful city on the Puget Sound (Pacific Ocean is not far away). We have mountains, water (many beaches) and natural beauty all around. Our home is in North Seattle (about 7 miles from downtown) and it is easy to get around on the bus. We have a yard and garden. Both Hector and Krisanne are self-employed. Krisanne works from home and is a Real Estate agent and Hector has a small concrete finishing business, for which Krisanne does the scheduling and bookkeeping. We are a busy family and the boys enjoy playing soccer, climbing trees and being active. Seattle has many different neighborhoods to explore. It has arts, culture and nature. The ferries run to the San Juan islands for weekend trips or just hang out in one of many local coffee shops. We are a laid back family and love to share experiences with travelers. We love to travel ourselves, but with three small children we are staying put for the time being. We are currently looking for a single person to have an exchange with. We hope the person will feel comfortable exploring the city independently. We will be happy to show some areas of Seattle, but we have had a few work-awayers and it is difficult with the three kids going to the tourist sites. I will help you plan good places to see/visit, depending on your interests. There are also websites with many activities for different interests, for which you can inquire and it is a good way to meet new people. Our preference is for someone who is 21+ years old (not required, but gives the person more freedom to go out, etc.), feels comfortable taking the bus to see attractions, speaks English well and is a self-motivated person.
Area: Waiheke Island, Auckland, North Island, NZWe live on beautiful Waiheke Island which is only 35 mintes by ferry from Auckland City and is famous for its beaches, vineyards, restaurants, tourism opportunites and olive groves. The Onetangi Wine belt is a rural haven. We live in a tranquil, developing farm, right amongst the vineyards, looking down on Onetangi Valley. We are a short walk to the Waiheke Golf Course, sports park and neigbouring vineyard restaurants. Our gate is right on the main bus route. We've just moved there recently and are enjoying bringing the land and buildings up to their full potential. Plans are afoot to run a tourism venture from the land, and offer short term accomodation in two cottages and a lodge. We have chickens, doves, dogs and toddler.
