In Tennessee on my first sit

Hi, I’m Linda from Ireland and am in Columbia TN on my first THS petsit, as part of a three month solo road trip around the Deep South. Enjoying every moment of the travelling and sitting so far. Taking care of three dogs and a cat - Vincent. Samson. Prince Hairy and Ramsey. Heading to Birmingham AL next, then hoping to pick up sits in MS and LA before finishing up in FL. The life of a retiree!

Hi, Linda. I’m from near you in Ireland (Dundalk), now living in Texas. Enjoy your visit to the US!

Wow, you’re off to a flying start. Happy travels/sits :slight_smile:

@Valhalla welcome to the South! Those three babies are adorable.
What part of Tennessee are you in right now? I’m originally from Chattanooga, which is right on the GA/TN border. Lovely area for walks in the hills or by the river. You are going to find some great folks here with some great furbabies to love on while taking care of them. The South is a great part of the Country, and unless the weather takes a turn for the worse, you will find some of the best temperatures as well. Cool days and nights and not much in the way of snow!

Enjoy your three months!

What a fantastic adventure @Valhalla ! An international road trip for your first sit. Lovely photos of your new friends!

Welcome @Valhalla. You are starting well!
Where in Louisiana will you be? I grew up in New Orleans!

I’d love to do this. Well done and enjoy the whole trip :sunglasses:

Hoping to tour cajun country plus NOLa of course. A friend has just bought an apartment there.

Thank you. Came to Columbia in mid Tennessee via Nashville.

Am originally from west Cork but living in Northern Ireland for work since 1988. Love Texas. Visited San Antonio and toured towards Mexican border.


Fabulous! Intrepid traveller!:+1:

Good for you Linda, that sounds like my kind of adventure. Maybe you could start a ‘travel talk’ category post on the forum about your travels. I, and am sure, lots of others would be interested.
Your companions look lovely and you’ll be getting your first review soon and you’re off!


What a handsome crew. Enjoy your adventures.
