  1. Congratulations guys ☺
    And a good blog from you Louis ☺
    I have recently started housesitting and love it. Hope to do this for a long time. Done my first and got 3 more between now and April . Then I go home and stay for the summer and hope to get some more sits after that.
    Good luck you guys.

    • I highly recommend joining and experiencing housesitting – not only does it save you $$ travelling, you get to meet some amazing locals that often become friends; you sometime get to care for the loveliest of pets, and it feels like home away from home.
