OK, get your mind out of the gutter. I meant houses, lol. I was talking with one of the other members here on MSN, if he likes he can take credit for this idea. Anyway, he had kind of a neat idea and I was wondering if anyone had tried it. Say you go down to Temptations and meet some other great people and you all hit it off real good. You live in a part of the country/world that they would like to visit and they live in an area that you would like to visit. In the summer/winter/fall whenever, you decide to visit your new friends and they play host for a week or so. They put you up, you save on hotel costs, feed you the basics and then you do the touristy stuff for a week or so. We live halfway between Toronto and Niagara Falls, great touristy stuff for people, then six months later you reciprocate. Has anyone tried this? Did it work out or is there some awkwardness or other stuff that prevents this from being sucessful. It seems like a good idea, 1/2 the cost of your vacation can be the hotel and this way you get to see the top tourist destinations and also particpate in a little bit of the local culture. Any thoughts?
