Helen Bergstein, who runs a home exchange website called Digsville.com, says hook-ups are quite common, such as the lady who celebrated her 60th birthday by doing a home exchange in New Zealand.
The woman hadnt had sex in nearly 25 years but found the love of her life practically off the plane.
She figures home exchange romances often occur because, as she puts it, youre among other locals, and not in a rush like the typical tourist.
But, frankly, true love isnt always in the stars. Bergstein was once set up on a date by the folks she exchanged houses with, but things didnt click.
Bergstein admits vacation flings are one benefit of home exchanges but warns, if you meet someone in a foreign city, they can tell you just about anything that they want.
