" Welcome to our world" Piggy73's Profile
Well our VT pages are definately due for a revamp .... so I will start of dusting off the cobwebs.
I discovered the world of VT while living in Best, near Eindhoven in The Netherlands. We had returned from a round the world trip in 1999 and my husband was offered a job in The Netherlands and we thought why not ... it would be another experience. In 2002 while researching for some information on the internet about places we could visit I came across VT and signed up for VT meetings in Rotterdam and Antwerp (2002).

Our longest trip was for 15 months and we tended to stay with local people that were involved in hospitality exchange schemes. On a few occasions we also did some voluntary work in exchange for accommodation and food. Our first stop was New Orleans where our arrival coincided with the annual Jazz festival and our journey ended in Hawaii before our flight took us back to London.
Our route took us through the following places
Belgium - Antwerp
The Netherlands - Rotterdam
