Travelling on a budget means finding less expensive ways of sleeping, preferably ones that don't involve cardboard boxes! One option is house sitting, and we have recently signed up to a couple of house sitting sites to offer our services to the many people out there who want their houses and their pets looking after while they go on holiday. Of course Nic seems to be most interested in those that have either got labradors or something more unusual - he is already rather disappointed that we won't be around to help out the people in Hertfordshire who need someone to look after their pet racoon.
So if you know anyone who needs their home and any pets looked after while they're away, drop us a message. We'll be back in the UK from July to mid October, but could be interested in ones further afield too, while we travel.
Welcome to our travel blog. We are Tabitha and Nic. In 2011 we 'retired' in our early 40s and set off to travel the world. We spent our first year in South America and have been lucky enough to make two trips to Antarctica.
Our blog is a record of our travels, thoughts and experiences. It is not a guide book, but we do include some tips and information, so we hope that you may find it useful if you are planning to visit somewhere we have been. Or you may just find it interesting as a bit of armchair travel.
