How to Arrange a Home Exchange with Kids

Dan and his family of six have been traveling the world for years using home swaps to save thousands upon thousands of dollars. They’ve been all over the world, staying in private homes while letting other families stay in theirs. The Prince family homeschooled their four kids in the past, but now during their present home exchange in southern France, they’ve put their kids into local schools. The kids are loving it — making friends while becoming bilingual. I can relate to this, so we discuss this in the interview, as well.
