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.

We primarily use TrustedHousesitters for travel exchanges where we exchange home and pet care for accommodation.
