We, at Know Your Trade, believe
strongly in the home exchange concept. KYT began when we started
exploring alternatives to our present home exchange club. We soon
realized that there were dozens of choices and it would take a
very long time to explore them. So, we decided to do the work
for you and put all that home exchange information in one, easy
to use place.
Joe Murray , AKA Yorick
I made my first home swap at the tender age of seventeen. I was
an exchange student at a German university living in a small
room in a student housing facility in Muenster. I was contacted
through the international student travel agency by a couple of
British students rooming at similar digs at the University of
London campus in Surrey. They were looking for a place to trade
over spring break and we made the deal (this was long before
email) by letters and one quick phone call. Since then I have
traded countless times over nearly forty years on six out of
the seven continents.
Leslie Nicodemus, AKA the Exchange Queen
I came into the home exchange world via Joe. I have traveled extensively,
to such far flung places as Kyrgyzstan and Moscow. Being a naturally
thrifty person, when Joe suggested trying a home exchange to Paris,
I jumped at the chance. The experience was wonderful; two weeks
in the middle of the Latin Quarter in a one bedroom apartment.
I loved learning the neighborhood and becoming a regular at the
local bar. I was hooked! We are now planning another home exchange
to Florence. These trips would not be possible without home exchange.
We have created this site to enrich your trading experience and
make the entire homeexchange process easier and less mysterious.
So, regardless of your trading experience, your location, your
age or lifestyle, take a look at KYT and if anything comes to
mind that you feel may be valuable to the home exchange community,
please do drop us a line and we’ll put it out there.
Although Miguel is not part of our team, he has helped us considerably
with our database. We recommend him highly.
