Empty Nester Couple Turned Full time Travelers

Hello All! Stephen and I joined TH 8 months ago in preparation for our year abroad. We recently sold everything we owned, and moved into a tiny traveler trailer for 3 months and traveled the US. We had our first housesit in July in TN and we were lucky to have HO who allowed us to park our trailer for a week in their frontyard while we watched their dogs. It was wonderful.

I am currently in England on our 5 housesit. We left Scotland last night and before that were in Ireland. We are doing a month long housesit in Spain and have already been invited and confirmed to sit in Switzerland and Luxembourg over the holidays. I am so grateful to TH and the opportunities we have had so far to take care of other pets and homes.

What a gift we are giving others to give them peace of mind while they travel. We continue to make this full time and with our flexibility in our lives we think we can.

Its great to be apart of this forum and to learn from others. Is there ever a time that TH get together when we learn we are in the same areas? Meetups if you will? Would love to connect with others in our tribe!

Many thanks and travel on…

Best wishes for you.
