    Hello World Travelers!

    Thanks for your interest in visiting our family and area!

    We are a mom, dad, two boys and a small, friendly dog. Our household is vegetarian and non-smoking.

    The walk to the bus stop from our house is about 10 mins.
    The bus to BART train system is about 15 minutes.
    Look up BART train schedules.
    The Amtrak train has a pass for travel within Cali and more.
    It is easy to hop on flixbus or greyhound and go to los angeles and then vegas and grand canyon — look for tours out of los angeles — asian tours have accommodations and food packages for cheap.
    Southwest Airlines and Jet Blue Airlines has cheap travel within USA.

    We are working on a new project!
    Aviary.
    To help animals who are currently living at animal rescue shelters because they can not be released into the wild.
    The space is approximately 40 feet by 5 feet.
    Currently there is a garden bed of 30’ by 2’.
    The idea is to enclose it to make an aviary.
    Build a basic frame with wire mesh.
    Create a water feature.
    The birds will mostly be in the garden bed areas.
    The bunnies can be on the ground in the 3’ walkway and end space.
    Any compatible animals can live there from the rescue shelters that can not be released.
    No experience necessary!
    You can use this as volunteer - work experience.

    Do you want to comfort animals that have been hurt, abandoned or mistreated? We will be creating and maintaining an Aviary for animals that are currently living at rescue shelters and can not be released into the wild. No experience necessary! If you have experience - great! What are your ideas for helping creatures in need?

    I mean the following to be said kindly and give more information to you.

    You are responsible for your travels. Always have back up plans! Please only contact me once you understand your USA visa. I am not able to answer visa questions or be a reference. You must have an itinerary for the Bay Area that includes local interests and accommodations for your budget. We only meet after you are staying in the Bay Area. We meet with international travelers a day or two after your arrival.

    While here you are a part of our family, our daily lives, and household. You are expected to pitch in with meals, clean up and daily activities...just like you do at home!
    Timing depends on weather and what things we want to do during the day. For example, some days it makes sense to prepare lunch and dinner at the same time so that we can go out and enjoy the day with only dinner dishes to be put in the dishwasher. Or, we might have plans during the morning and afternoon so that we make dinner and clean up in the evening.

    Meeting with visitors to exchange culture and stories is amazing!
    We grow and learn working together on small and big projects so the visiting time varies. We work it out depending on your travel itinerary and talents!

    Family life is busy and hectic! There is usually a lot going on...but together we have fun!
    There are many trails and parks and lots of outside time. Getting around by city bus (to BART train) is about a 15-minute walk.

    We ask to Skype and video chat with you so we can get to know each other better before the exchange and get many of the questions answered.

    If it works for you to add a cultural-exchange with us while on your trip then great!

    Wishing you Fun Travels!
    Susan

    What is always welcome? Having a positive attitude about the world and sharing your stories!
    Everyone has something to share. Maybe you play an instrument, draw/paint, write or make videos, play sports, run/hike, cook/bake.
    This is a cultural-exchange homestay.
    There is no job or work.
    You are part of the family while here. Please pitch in with daily household activities inside and outside of the house...just like you do at home!

    Typically, we like to get the meals prepared and house organized so that after lunch there is free time to go out and explore and enjoy! However, family schedule and weather usually determines the daily activities.

    If you are an English language learner we would be glad to help you!

    We have met wonderful travelers who stop to sightsee in our area of the Bay Area called the East Bay which is about an hour from the city San Francisco.
    There are museums in the area and different things to see and do, many walking trails and parks. There is a city bus that goes to many areas and to the BART train system to all of the Bay Area.
    We will more than likely include you in many things we do so please join us if you like.
    We are happy to help with English language learning.

    Please note that we would like to video chat, Skype or other, with you before your visit so we can get to know each other better and make sure to get many questions answered.

    Thanks so much and Best to you on your travels!
