This week we are swapping apartments with a couple in London that we’ve never met. We have a mutual friend and I’ve spoken with them over the phone but other than that I don’t know them. We got some cheap train tickets (its only two hours on the train!) so this whole trip will be very low budget. I’m a little nervous about letting someone stay in our apartment but excited that we are able to travel so cheaply, in fact we’re not even taking work off. Plus sometimes I prefer staying in apartments to hotels because they feel more neighborhood-y. Do you think its crazy to swap with someone we’ve never met? Have you ever done it or would you ever do it? Also if you had four quick days in London with small kids what are your top three things to do?
I know I want to go on the London Eye, Ride a Double Decker Bus, visit Liberty, and eat some Fish and Chips. What am I missing?
