Somewhere in our gene pool, nomads roamed free. We’re certain of it. We just aren’t able to stay in one place for any length of time. We are restless. What else can we say? We’ve traveled to 35 countries on six continents and, rather than satisfy our urge, it has stimulated it – we just want more!
We’ve been so fortunate… we’ve camped our way through the game parks of Kenya listening to lions call while we sipped tea around a campfire… savored wine under a full moon at an outdoor taverna on the Greek Island of Naxos, our bare feet nestled into soft sand… munched on golden deep fried insects in Beijing, washed down with ice cold beer… swooned over fig tart and gelato in Tuscany… bathed Asian Elephants in a river while volunteering at a sanctuary in Thailand… swum with Reef Sharks and Manta Rays in the South Pacific… paddled mere inches away from Grey Whales in Baja California… trekked through Andalusia and feasted on wild boar… touched the monolithic stones of the pyramids in Egypt… walked the same stone alleyways as did armor clad Knights in Malta… gazed upon Paris in all of its glory from the top of the Eiffel Tower at sunset… and cruised through the Straits of Magellan at dawn.
You can understand why we are addicted… but travel is expensive and we are retired with no intention of going back to work. So we had to come up with an affordable way to fund our future travels and our answer – and we think it’s a brilliant one – is house sitting our way around the world one house at a time.
House sitting has been the perfect solution for us and it might be for you too. That’s why we’ve written “The House Sitter’s How-to Handbook” your complete guide to travel and adventure as a house sitter.
Our hope is that you be inspired to let your own inner nomad roam free…
