Beautiful! SANTA CRUZ, CA USA

Hello! Come visit Santa Cruz on the West coast of California, USA ... perfect climate almost anytime of the year.  

Santa cruz is home to University of CA Santa Cruz, also wonderful for biking, hiking, surfing, beach going and walking along the coastal path (West Cliff Drive), and many other sporting & cultural activities. Definitely child friendly, our down town area has many excellent restaurants, shops, movie theaters, a large boardwalk with rides, etc. we also have the Santa Cruz Symphony, and a wharf that also has restaurants and shops. Santa Cruz is a great place to live and visit. We have many excellent beaches within a short walk.

Dear Intervac families,

We will be looking for a trade to start around September of 2016 - June or so of 2017 .. no firm dates right now, for 3-4 weeks.

We are interested in most of Europe. We have made 6 successful trades to Europe. We are a non smoking family. My husband, Jerry is a structural engineer. We have raised our sons and I help with Jerry's business. Our youngest son, 28,
may or may not join us for part of this trip.

Below is some local information and sites that I put together last year:

Santa Cruz is on the coast, just 110 km (75 minutes) south of the
lovely city of San Francisco (where I was born-Cathy) see: www.sanfrancisco.travel/

We are close (minutes) to the mountains, the sea, golf courses, Frisbee golf courses, .. etc.
http://www.santacruzca.org/

San Jose (also known as Silicon Valley) is a 30 minute drive.

Yosemite National Park is 3-4 hours drive from Santa Cruz.
www.yosemitepark.com/

Carmel and Monterey are about an hour south of Santa Cruz, the Monterey
Bay Aquarium, excellent dining and professional quality golf courses.

We have made 6 successful trades, three to France and one each to England, Italy and Netherlands. We have a 4 door Honda Accord, seats 5. We have cable TV & wifi in our home and would appreciate the same.

Please contact us if you would like to discuss a trade.
Thank you for your consideration.
Kind regards,
Cathy and Jerry Allen

ps. Let us assure you we are very conscientious and considerate of others
homes and belongings, we have never had a problem with our trades or trading families,
all has gone very well.
