- It’s a “catalyst” for travel
- The adventure of the unknown (but after a bit of due diligence)
- Meeting the pets and being amazed by their different personalities
Ours are basically the same.
Can’t say fairer than those 3 things, in no particular order
Experiencing places more as a local than as a tourist.
Having the company of pets that are different from my beloved rescue dog, who has special needs and can’t integrate or socialize like other pets. That’s been hugely rewarding. (My husband doesn’t enjoy travel anywhere as much as I do and he stays home with our dog.)
Seeing how other people live and experiencing slices of that. Also, I’ve long daydreamed about living in the U.K. Having experienced different cities and lifestyles here via sits (I’m on one now), I have a much better sense of what and where I’d choose. I work remotely, so have flex. I’ve been recruited by a U.K. company before and passed. I’m now being recruited by another one and U.K. sits have made that much more tempting.
