Here are some travel and host experiences from Adrienne Pilz
My family has had delightful experiences traveling in Europe. It has varied:
from a little apartment in Paris
a 200 year old farm house in Italy
a million dollar home in Germany.
a home at the sea shore in Connecticut
an upstairs apartment in West New York
a home filled with antiques in California where I again met a traveler who had stayed in our home!
Hosts have always been so gracious and welcomed us as part of their family and given suggestionsfor sight seeing. We have enjoyed it and highly recommend learning to appreciate people of other cultures and increasing friendships. This is my favorite way of traveling!
As a host family we have had families and people from Jamaica, Denmark, Poland, France, Isreal, Australia. Two young men returned two more times and then stayed with family members in other parts of the United States.
