Europe, New England, Australia, or somewhere in the United States? Think about it for a minute. Dare to dream. Just where would you travel if you could stay there absolutely free?
Picture yourself setting in a log cabin by a beautiful Lake. You’re setting in a comfortable leather recliner looking out of three big bay windows where you can see tall pines covered in healthy green moss and the shimmering of the big lake nearby. Maybe there’s a big ole chubby grey cat curled at your feet. You’re so relaxed. You have no electric bills, no gas bills, nothing to worry about except buying your food and putting gas in the car, which you have access to also.
If this scene doesn’t strike you as what you are looking for, then dream of a beach house right on the beach, a cabin in the snow, a cottage in Ireland, a ranch in Colorado, where ever your imagination can take you. Now would you like me to show you how to make your dreams come true? Because, they can for single people, retired couples and even families.
What I am talking about is House-sitting. As a housesitter, you are able to experience what it is really like to live in certain areas. Most of the people (but not all) have a pet that they also want you to care for. It might be a cat or a dog or a horse or maybe some other pet. You choose from a very large selection of people from all over the world. They, themselves, are usually going on a vacation somewhere and they need some one to take care of their home and their pet while they are away. You stay for free and get to enjoy all of the scenery and/or events that might be taking place where you are at.
I found this great little hand-book that teaches you everything you need to know about how to become a house sitter. It’s written by two full time sitters. They are retired and enjoying just traveling all over the world. Whether it be for a week or two, a year or as a full time lifestyle this book tells you all you need to know to do the same. They show you how to find and get the perfect house sit. The handbook’s 10 chapters are organized to walk you through the process from total inexperience to the completion of your first housesit. They teach you how to make the most of the benefits and opportunities that exist for house sitting worldwide.
This book is definitely worth reading if this sounds at all interesting to you. House sits are available for weekends, long weekends, weeks, and months. You have so much to choose from. This book shows you everything you need to know, because not only do you have to find a house, they also have to approve of you. After you have done it for a while, it gets easier. Take your time and check it out. It won’t be a waste of time. Also check out this link, house-sitters, to look at getting started. Inside the book you will find links to several other sites.
