Greetings from the east coast USA

Hello @sandisolo

Thank you for joining our community forum. You are going to find it is filled with answers to most, if not all, of your questions and enquiries.

My name is Debbie and I am one of the forum moderators, as well as a sitter member of TrustedHousesitters. I was an owner member for three years and have now moved over to a sitter membership, so I have insight into both sides of the memberships. Have you been to Portugal yet? We were just there in May and it was absoluately beautiful! We travelled Lisbon, Porto, Coimbria, and my favorite Nazare……a beautiful beach town! Lisbon was a little big for me but I certainly enjoyed drinking Port in the lovely town of Porto!

I am hoping this info will help you find your way around the platform and interest you to join in the conversations. It can be a little daunting and confusing at first, so we included this handy guide
