Everything you wanted to know about home swaps

Well, I'm not sure if it's everything you wanted to know about home swaps, but I've done my best to include lots of useful information in my recent article on home exchanging for You'll find interviews with home exchangers, an annotated list of some of the leading sites with European listings, and more. And don't forget to check out the rest of the site as well--it's full of great tips for experiencing the Continent (and the U.K.) as the locals do.

Travel writing workshop

Sorry I've been so incommunicado lately. I've been on holidays. I'm actually still out of the office for a few more days, but I came across some information on a travel writing workshop in New York's Hudson Valley that I thought might interest some readers out there.

The instructor is Bob Haru Fisher, a columnist and contributing editor at The workshop looks like it might be useful to anyone looking to get into the lucrative (not!), fun (definitely) world of travel writing. The workshop takes place September 16 to 18 in Hudson, NY. For more information, see the workshop's website.
