As traveling housesitters, we experience the world one sit at a time. We love the idea of slow travel and the immersive experience it gives us. When we stay in real homes, we experience a destination more like locals and avoid the rush of traditional tourism.
There are many platforms to explore to begin an adventure in housesitting. Some people want to housesit just for a particular holiday. Others, like us, end up leaving our traditional homes behind to full time traveling housesitters. We primarily use TrustedHousesitters . If you use our link, you will receive a discount on your membership, and we’ll get a couple of months free as well.
Here are some of our latest blog posts about how we experience the world through slow travel.
