We are a family of five worldschooled kids ages 10-28. We have lived and learned in multiple countries around the world and are always on a quest to head out again. Our home base is in St Petersburg, Florida (right now) where we have a house near the bay and Sunshine Skyway Bridge. Wonderful beaches are all around us and St Pete is becoming an amazing spot for diverse restaurants, street art and museums. I am a professor and primarily teach online courses so we can travel freely.

Our house is a couple of minutes walk from the bay that overlooks the huge Skyway Bridge connecting St. Petersburg to Sarasota, Florida. The house is 3 bedroom, 3 bathrooms, 3 living areas, a large screened patio (another living area), and a pool. We are in the famed Pink Streets so our neighborhood has roads tinted pink with huge trees providing shady places to walk. There is a long park alongside the water, beach park, recreation centers with playgrounds, fishing piers, canoe/kayak/boat launches and more within 5 minutes of the house. We have like to cook so the kitchen is well stocked. Dine inside or outside or sit at one of the two bars.

The internet/wifi is fast with extenders to ensure all points of the house are covered. We have televisions in multiple areas and video game systems plus treadmill and recumbent exercise bike with some weights. There are also bikes available as this area is a popular one to cycle in.
The beaches near us have been identified as some of the top in the world. Fort de Soto is about 10 minute drive away: www.pinellascounty.org/park/05_Ft_DeSoto.htm
St Pete Beach, Clearwater Beach, and those across the bridge toward Sarasota are world class and all within a 30 minute drive or so.
St Petersburg city is wonderful. We are becoming known for street art: www.visitstpeteclearwater.com/list/ultimate-list-street-art-st-pete plus we have the incredible Dali Museum and Chihuly, Holocaust, and Fine Arts Museums.
Another plus are the growing number of diverse and tasty restaurants. Everything is available from seafood to Vietnamese. There are also weekly farmer’s markets and organic fruit and vegetables are plentiful.
The house is an easy 30-minute drive from Tampa and the airport, an hour and a half from Orlando (theme parks and airport) and about four hours to Miami (airport and gateway to the Keys). If you head north you get to Crystal River area where you can snorkel with the manatees. Ballet, horse riding, music lessons, symphony, musical theater and other shows are available at three huge arts centers (Tampa/Sarasota/Clearwater).
There are loads of homeschoolers in the area and we have been members of three different cooperatives. It’s a wonderful area and we are thrilled to call it our home-base.

We are looking to house swap anywhere in the world really. Will be swapping in August for the UK and then would like to remain in Europe. We do have a dog (30 pound beagle) and so may need to have him with us.
