These two boys are fantastic people..Beautiful, beautiful,...amazing..amazing..(sounds like somebody who is currently illegally occupying the White House, huh?)..They stayed with us a few days just before Xmas time and invited us to visit them during Easter holiday and we did..We had such a wonderful time with them...And they were the best host and tour guide (they should get a job of providing tours...lol)..Very neat and cozy apartment in a quiet but yet charming English (or Irish or whatever you prefer to call) village. Although the weather was so cooperative, we got the best out of it...Ken drove us to around see all the famous sites (including my GOT filming locations)...We shared a lot of meals inside and outside of the apartment...We will definitely recommend them to anybody who loves Northern Ireland!! LOVE YOU BOYZ!!

I met Yak and Randy via email then was hosted two nights before returning with older siblings. The highlight was meeting Yak and Randy, warm, welcoming guys full of local insight in an area of incredible natural beauty. Their advice on what to see and do was invaluable. They took the time to take me on a fabulous hike through Glens of Antrim, drive along spectacular coast, and included me in a couple family dinners. They recommended a Saturday night of traditional Irish music and storytelling at a neighboring town, incredible experience. Close by is Belfast, from which we took 2 hour ferry ride to Scotland for a day of hiking and fabulous seafood. Too many cool delights in the area to describe from Game of Thrones scenery to Giants's Causway to Port Rush. I hope they let me go back nst summer to escape desert heat and only wish they have wonderful time winter retreat in Palm Springs.

Another opportunity for a non simultaneous swap in Northern Ireland, the second time was even better than the first! The modern apartment in lovely small town Broughshane was all set for my partner and I and older sibling and wife. My partner says Northern Ireland, the World Heritage sites, the Glens of Atrim, the rugged coastline, the amazing seafood, daily hikes and visits to "Game of Thrones" physical locations made it his best vacation ever, and he's had lots of good ones. The guys left all sorts of local tips which served us well. Next time I'll stay longer and more day trips, so much more to explore.
The hosts have been to my place 3 times and are always welcome back.
