HI, We are a well traveled couple, Dan & Francine, with 6 adult children between us but only one, Julie is still at home. We enjoy opening our home to like minded travelers and visitors. French and English is spoken at home and Julie living with us is fluent in Spanish.
We have also used local accommodations run by local families when traveling in the Americas, Europe or Asia, and we know what you are looking for and need to make your trip the best experience possible.
We have enjoyed car trips in Canada, the US and Europe, backpacking as a family throughout China, or as a couple overland from Istanbul Turkey to Aswan Egypt with a small tour group to the more luxurious cruising in the Baltic and Mediterranean.
Dan still works full time and when Francine isn't busy planning their next trip, she volunteers at a seniors drop-in center, the Ottawa International Jazz Festival or the Bluesfest.
We have all kind of information about favorite restaurants you might want to try as well as inexpensive and free activities to participate in during your visit. Most are within walking distance too!
