Home Exchange, Mid-term Exchange (2-4 weeks), Long-term Exchange (1 month plus)

Gita and John are teachers ( both 63) so we can take off during the holidays ( July - 4 weeks - and December - 2 weeks - and April - just over one week) We can also take additional time off as we plan for retirement. We love to travel. John loves his golf. We have done several home exchanges in Australia, Canada, Luxembourg and Portugal.

Our house is literally on the beautiful Mekong river. You step out of the sliding doors to enjoy wonderful views of the Mekong and Thailand on the other side. We have a 15 m infinity swimming pool where you can cool off during the hot season. ( April to August). Too cold to swim from December to February.We have two bedrooms in the main part of the house, with a long lounge / dining room and kitchen.We have a live-in maid ( Filipino) who can be available ( small payment)
We have a separate bedroom above the garage which is like a independent apartment by itself with a large bedroom and attached bathroom.
We have a vehicle that can be included in the exchange.
We have a small dog ( Cwtch) who is a Swedish Valhund and she is very friendly but initially very shy.
As we are so close to the Mekong, our garden was recently swept away by the river, so we are having to do some renovations to our garden. So until around March 2019, our swimming pool is out of use. So sorry about this.

Vientiane city centre is around 15 minutes away. We live in a Village ( BO AU / BO KENYANG) which is very nice....however, no one speaks english...hahahaha...nice to go for early morning/evening walks.

The map marker is a general indicator of the local area only.
Fishing, Galleries/Museums, Golf, Historical Sites, Restaurants, Walking

We are only 10 to 15 minutes from Vientiane Centre. We are also close to some of the sights ( Buddha Park, Patuxai, Thaluang Temple) as well as golf course. (all within 15 to 20 minutes drive)
Nice to drive into the city to enjoy a lovely breakfast in one of the French type cafes ( Annabelles) or a tasty evening meal.

My wife, Gita and myself are teachers and have worked in International schools in South East Asia for over 30+ years. We plan to retire next year ( both of us 62 years young) and would love to exchange our homes ( one in Penang, Malaysia and the other in Vientiane in Laos) with similar exchangers. We are open to any destinations. John is interested in golf and Gita likes walking, yoga and cultural exchanges.
