And of course we're not alone!
In fact thousands of people globally, of all nationalities, backgrounds and ages,
are using house sitting to travel the world.
Some as one-off vacations, many mix it with other travel experiences, and a
handful like us, do it full-time.
However, it's also important to remember house sitting is not a 'free' holiday.
House sitting is an exchange of services - you look after someone’s home and
their pets (if they have them), and in return you enjoy free accommodation and utilities, and often use of their vehicle.
House Sitting does come with responsibilities, and therefore is not for everyone.
If you like free spirited travel where you can move around constantly or be out
sight-seeing all day, then you could consider house sitting as a great addition to
your travel mix instead. A time to slow down and really get to know a place.
House sitting is all about slower paced immersion travel into cultures and communities, experiencing the joy of getting to know the locals, having time to
learn a new language or write that illusive book, combined of course with the love
and fun of awesome pets.
If you are ready to travel the world full-time or part-time with house sitting,
then the Academy is ready to make it a reality.
