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 for travel exchanges where we exchange home and pet care for accommodation.
