We started our house & pet sitting career in late 2015 in Jindabyne, NSW, Australia. We looked after a friends house and two dogs for a couple of weeks. After that, we really loved the idea of house & pet sitting.
Fast forward to 2019. We have continued our house sitting journey and successfully looked after 24 beautiful homes and pets. We have managed to look after homes in 8 countries! Including The United Kingdom, The Republic of Ireland, Malaysia, Thailand, France, Spain, New Zealand & Australia.
In those 24 homes, we have looked after 35 dogs, 14 cats, 6 chickens and 1 tortoise.
Where Are We House Sitting Right Meow?
We are currently in Barcelona! We are looking after a little apartment in Barceloneta for a week before heading back up into Southern France!
What Are Our Future Hous Sitting Plans?
We are spending May and June in France looking after 2 more homes. We then head through Northern Italy quickly before leaving the Schengen region for Croatia and Eastern Europe for 3 months.
Once we can enter the Schengen region again we will head back up through Italy and slowly make our way back to the UK to sell our van by November.
From November we plan to head to New York, which is somewhere we have both really wanted to go for years!
Its Jays birthday in December, and he really wants to have a legit fish taco instead of a birthday cake so we will make our way from New York to Mexico before heading back to Australia and New Zealand for Christmas 2019! We both have a passion for immersing ourselves in the food (wine), culture and everyday lives of a new country. There are 195 countries in the world, ideally, and we want to experience as many as we can.
Together we have a goal of exploring every country in the world, no country is too far away or too diverse for us.
