After we travel, my husband I have always enjoyed rehashing the details of our trip over a glass or two of wine and come up with a “best of” list. For us, planning and remembering a trip is almost as much fun as taking the trip itself. We also talk about biggest disappointment and biggest pleasant surprise, and have fun arguing for our own personal favourites and trying to convince the other person why our choice should be added to the list.
Once we started housesitting, we continued the tradition, but applied it to housesitting specifically. With 11 sits to date, we now have an overall housesit “Best Of” list as well. Does anyone else do anything similar?
Here are some of our categories, in no particular order:
Best local walks
Best character (house)
Best local activities/sights
Best shopping convenience
Best farm market / shop
Best overall sit
