The Journey Begins

Welcome! We’re so glad you’ve joined us on our journey. Here we’ll be posting about the international housesitting adventure we started in the summer of 2018: the ins and outs, the ups and downs, the good days and the bad. Most importantly, we’ll be telling you how we did it: the research and planning, the things we figured out the hard way, the stuff we wished we’d known when we started out — and what you need to know to begin your own dive into the world of housesitting. Ready to kick off your own adventure? Let’s get started…

P.S. Go here if you want to read the very first newsletter post we wrote about this experience, before we’d left the States. Oh, how innocent we were! (Not really, but there was so much we hadn’t yet figured out.) And go here to sign up to receive future editions of our monthly newsletter!
