We are a family of four travelers (and sometimes it's just the two of us, no kids) who love exploring at home and abroad, especially through home swapping/sharing and the off-the-beaten neighborhoods that comes with this unique kind of travel. Marc is a high school science teacher and Lara is an artist and marketing consultant. Our two boys, now 9 and 12, are accustomed to visiting new lands (and being respectful to others' homes) through many family adventures. We are active and love finding our fun outside: biking, surfing, skiing, hiking, climbing and more. Respect and responsibility are two values important to our family, and you can count on us to honor them in your home.
