    ---------------------------------------------
    I discovered the world of VT 7 Feb 2002 while living in Best, near Eindhoven in The Netherlands. John and I had returned to the UK from a round the world trip in 1999 and he was offered a job in The Netherlands and we thought why not ... it would be another experience. While researching for some information on the internet about places we could visit I came across VT and signed up for VT meetings in Rotterdam and Antwerp (2002). When VT closed in 2017 I joined TP.

    A long trip in 1998: Our longest trip was for 15 months and we tended to stay with local people that were involved in hospitality exchange schemes. On a few occasions we also did some voluntary work in exchange for accommodation and food. Our first stop was New Orleans where our arrival coincided with the annual Jazz festival and our journey ended in Hawaii before our flight took us back to London.
