Housesitting, where do I begin? Well, in 2015 we literally sold everything, furniture, house, vehicles and “stuff” because we had decided we wanted to live in other places. Our first thought was to get out of the cold by moving to Mexico. So we did, we spent a wonderful year in the Yucatan living in a little fishing village called Chelem. It was an incredible year but we had to return to Canada for a variety of personal reasons. As a result of that year we gathered a great deal of information on living in Mexico and the website was born. Mexico also became the catalyst for exploring further by housesitting.
Through a young couple that we had housesat for in Progreso, Mexico we returned to Toronto. In Toronto we got to housesit a beautifully renovated home while the owners flew to Hawaii to get married. After that sit was over we knew we wanted to travel a lot more. Our little hometown of London, Ontario just wasn’t enough and we began applying for more housesits in Ireland and the UK.
So in 2016 we are taking off for Tipperary in Ireland, Reading in the UK and then back to Dublin for Christmas and beyond that Turkey and Cyprus then Ireland again. We anticipate a few years of many adventures in housesitting and hope to tell the tale here. We also wanted to give folks an idea of how we got started in Housesitting and what we have learned to date.
