I’ve always been at home when the guests have arrived. We’ve got a private room in our home.
But now for the first time, I won’t be at home when our guest arrives. That is no problem, my husband will get home earlier from his work to welcome our guest. But for the last tree days of the visit I’ll be travelling with our kids. It feels very odd to leave the home like this for the first time! My husband is working long hours and the guest will be on his own. Any experiences from hosts who share their homes for not being there at the daytime?!!
-Earlier I thought I could have rented our apartment when leaving on holiday, but now I’ve heard some horror stories from people who lived a year abroad, that I’m no longer intrigued… These stories may have added my concern for this new situation.
