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. We decided that we were moving to Mexico, for at least a year. So we did we spent a wonderful year in the Yucatan living in a little fishing village called Chelem. We met many ex-pats in particular lots of Canadians and Texans. It was an incredible year but we had to return to Canada for a variety of personal reasons.
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. I had lived in the other London for nearly 10 years and experienced Greece, Australia, New Zealand and many of the US states, but having been born in Ireland and visited many times we really wanted to experience all that Europe had to offer.
So in 2016 we are taking off for Tipperary in Ireland, Reading in the UK and then back to Dublin for Christmas. 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.
