We’re Lynda and Gilles from Québec city, Canada and we’re new to this community. We’ve been traveling once or twice a year since 2015. We are retiring this year and we want to resume our travels that have been put on hold because of, you know…
We discovered TrustedHouseSitters because we were searching for a better way to have our two cats taken care of while we’re away. Up 'til now, we’ve been using a local service for a one hour visit everyday . They care well for our pets, but it would be too costly for a long trip and our cats do like a presence in the house more than just an hour a day.
So house sitting is exactly what we’ve been looking for. We want to live our retirement in Panama (which we visited) or Costa Rica (which we’ll visit this year). For a few years, we’ll try places where we might want to live but we don’t want to stress our cats with several relocations before we decide where we will be living our golden years.
We were very lucky to find two very nice sitters for our upcoming trip and were pleasantly surprised to see how quickly several people showed interest in visiting our snowy winter wonderland. So keep listening; many other opportunities will be available in the coming years.
