    German missing

    ...splits his time between Boston and Bonn

    Subject

    ...splits his time between Boston and Bonn

    Sources
    He splits his time between Boston and Bonn.

    Meaning: he spends about half the year in one, half in the other, but not necessarily 6 mos. here, 6mos. there.

    Could anyone help me translate this sentence into German?

    Thanks-

    And, for clarification, I meant six months "am Stück". So he might spend a week in Boston, two in Bonn, etc. So I need a word for split that doesn't imply 50% at once.

    THANKS!

    Maybe:
    Er lebt abwechselnd in Boston und Bonn.

    or:
    Er pendelt zwischen Boston und Bonn. (this would only apply if he travelled back and forth at least once a month)
