  1. Hi
    I have several months of exchanges organised for 2017 .
    This has taken me hundreds of hours to organise and while I am happy (ish) with the results to date the journey to get here has not been all plain sailing . The old story if I knew then what I know now it would have been far far easier .
    There are some rookie mistakes I made due to idiosyncratic nature of your site .

    • Hi Tony, How could we have helped you even more? What advice can you/we give to newbies according to your experience with our site? We look forward to reading your comments.
