Mountain cabin with red door

By Koseli.

I’m fascinated with the idea of apartment swaps and home swaps. I’d love to trade with someone who lives in a secluded mountain town, or spend a summer biking and exploring in Stockholm or Copenhagen.

I’ve been kind of obsessed with the whole idea lately and found 3 helpful links if you’d like to share my passion. For those who want to swap into NYC, this Airbnb neighborhood guide is brilliant and will make you sound city smart. Here are some great tips for prepping for a swap. And for the more adventurous, tips for swapping internationally.

Would you ever try an apartment swap? Or does staying in a stranger’s home — and having them stay in yours! — creep you out?
