Meetup Gallery - Share your meetup pix!

Our latest meet up is with my mother in law! - She has flown in from Greece to join us for a couple of weeks on a house sit in Sunny Leeds (UK).
We were unsure whether it would be difficult to find a home host that would agree to her staying with us but the first I asked In our initial application kindly agreed!
Athanasia is loving her first house and pet sitting experience :heart:

I had the pleasure of meeting THS sitter/HO, @sledgejoyce at Hyperion Espresso in Fredericksburg, Virginia this afternoon. We’ve talked and texted but this is our first in-person meeting! The weather was perfect.

Now that we are a “Remote First Company”, TrustedHousesitters organizes quarterly team get togethers so we all get a chance to work together in-person for a couple of days and are able to enjoy some social time in the evenings with our colleagues who some of us rarely see “off-screen”.

Last night @Therese-Moderator and I managed a couple of drinks together in a bar on the Brighton seafront - enjoying the longest day with people on the beach till it got dark! Therese is over from her home in Portugal, having just completed a house sit here, and I flew in from Mexico on route back to France at the weekend - so a happy stopover for us both!

No prizes for guessing what we chatted about for several hours !!!

Anyone else in Brighton this week?

Hi forum community. @Kirstin and I enjoyed a lovely brunch at the shore the other day, and we had such a wonderful time we’re going to meet again when we’re both back in San Diego in a few months. Bonus points, as Kirstin agreed to teach me how to play pickleball when we get together again!

It was a real pleasure for my sister, Libby, and I to meet up with @Therese-Moderator for lunch, enjoy a stroll down to Brighton Beach then have a coffee overlooking the seafront.
And yes, there was plenty of talking about what we love doing the most!!

Thank you @Amparo! Yes, we’ve been here just over a week and loving our first sit near Tunbridge Wells with our chickens and ducks in a gorgeous period home.
You’re continuing to have a fabulous time too with some wonderful sits for such lovely owners.

Looks like you had a great time - lovely pic!! So sorry I had to bail out at last minute … rendezvous challenges with my other half who was picking me up to go to the ferry. When we next have our THS in-person quarterly get-together we’ll have to organize ahead and see how many members we can get together for coffee in Brighton! Until September!! And @Colin see you then!!

It would have been lovely to meet you @Vanessa-ForumCMgr but Therese explained your situation. Perhaps September may still be a possibility depending on the dates of THS get-together!

We meet up with Gretchen & Jeff in London. We are both members of a travel Facebook group and realized we would both be in London on THS housesits at the same time. Planned an afternoon of talking about travel and pets that included adult beverages. So much fun!

Lovely to see Portugal and the US colliding over drinks in London!! Looks like you had lots of fun. Great to see Gretchen and Jeff back in Europe too. Amy’s become quite the meetup facilitator … been chatting to her this week about just this very topic!! How long are you in London @LynKinn and where next?

We have already left London and back in Portugal now. On our way back to Javea, Spain for a repeat Housesit for a couple of weeks. Then traveling around the Mediterranean for the summer with some more housesits too.

Sounds fabulous! Enjoy Spain :dancer: :sunny:

nice! Sorry we kept missing each other but glad we connected in other way. Have fun!

We had the pleasure of spending yesterday in Brighton, in the company of fellow full-time sitters (@marce ) Marcela, Antonio and their adorable dog Leonardo. It was great to share stories from the past and and hopes for the future with other sitters that have as much love and enthusiasm for this way of life as we do.
…and for those that wonder if it is possible to be successful house sitters whilst having a dog of your own, here is your proof that it definitely is!
