On Saturday I had the very great pleasure of sitting together with Intervac Belgium’s Member Advisory Board for coffee and lunch. They were in Stuttgart on a weekend getaway to exchange ideas in a relaxing setting, do some sightseeing and they didn’t even think of letting strikes at the Deutsche Bahn get in the way.
We agreed to meet at 9:30 in the morning at a bistro nearby. The owners were very kind and agreed to open early just for us and to cook us a wonderful Käsespätzle lunch. We got started very nearly on time even though most of our group had to take the scenic route to a neighboring village and then on to our meeting place by car and foot. They were real troopers!
We chatted a long time about their needs and wishes for our online system, how to make this blog something useful for our members, but also for those of you who don’t know much about home exchanging. They told me stories of welcome gifts from partners and friendships sealed by nice touches and common experience.
I’ll be telling you more about those things in the future so hang tight. Good things are on the way!
