I'm sitting here writing this in NYC. The best part? I'm staying here for free in my friends' incredible Brooklyn apartment.
We did a house swap. I'll stay here this weekend while they ski; they will stay at my house in DC this summer while we are in Europe.
The kids are endlessly entertained playing with a new set of toys. And, we have all the comforts of home. We even all got to hang out as we moved in. Everyone wins.
So add a family trip or two this year to your calendar, and save a few bills in your wallet.
(Yes my friend has a fireplace in NYC. Life is grand)
