Exchange with locals

2 glimpse is a platform that unites people wanting to catch a glimpse of another culture or life by inviting others into their own lives and home countries. 

Our idea is based on existing exchange programs for students/teens.

Participants will experience an unforgettable time in another country/environment by joining someone elses life as well as gain an opportunity to see their own country and life with a new perspective.

Lastly, our exchange aids in the understanding of cultural differences.  Of late, cultural divides seem to have allowed intolerance to differences of nationalities, cultures, and habits to grow.  ‘Glimpsing’ will change these misconceptions, and it will bring people together globally.

Let your world’s beauty grow by gaining cultural comprehension!

  • Meet international people with similar interests as yours outside of your own network, in an easy, informal way. 
  • Accessible for every budget.
  • Getting personal insights never to be found in books & websites. 

Live a life as a local and have a home abroad for a moment! Connect with real people.
This experience will broaden your world!

For meaningful encounters and priceless memories.
