Planning tips

If you're planning a trip to Alsace, you must not forgot a number of historic towns that put this tourist hot spot on the map: Obernai, Riqueswihr, Kaysersberg, Ribeauville, Guebwiller and Rouffach. They are all beautiful, traditional exciting towns. As we had done a few in the past, hubby insisted to skip the overly touristy stuff this time.But for any first-timer, they are a must.Work out a plan how much you can fit in your scheduled stay. How much eye-candy you can take it. My advice would always be to hit these tourist spots in early May and in the fall. Because of the weather which can become overly hot in the summer and because of the busloads of visitors you will encounter in the summer.

Ribeauville


We just subscribed to another home exchange company who made us an offer we couldn't resist: a full year's membership at only $49! Doubling our chances of finding a wonderful swapping partner, this will keep me busy, because their filter system doesn't work either properly. In addition I had to set up our own house description on their site which always takes a few hours. Luckily, I could copy and paste. Anybody who has ever been on an internet dating site will be aware of competitions out there and will want to maximize their chances.
Like every year I'd like to conclude this season with some general tips for home swapping. So here are some additional tips:
