House sitting to be come more popular during recession!

With the world finances in disarray and people trying to find ways to get good value for their depleting funds, it is a good time to look at house sitting as a way to get a low cost holiday.

Despite the financial woes of the world people will still want to take holidays, or still need to travel on business. They will still need their pets and their house cared for while away so gret opportunities should arise for those who are free to do some house sitting.

Even if the house sit is in your own region, it is as good as a holiday. If it is in your locale the travel costs are low and you can keep and you will be close to your friends.

If it is some distance away you will only have to be concerned about your travel costs - and you could have a great holiday.

There are some great venues available - even overseas if you wish!

House sitting is a saving for all - a true win/win experience. A good house sitter is a great help to people who do not wish to leave their pets at kennels, or who want their garden and house cared for. I enjoy "getting away" and exploring new locations and I don't mind if it is not far from home.

Updates from Housecarers

I am pleased to see on my daily emails from Housecarers.com that there are new opportunities opening in 2009. I will complete my current constract in China just after the middle of January, so I will be looking for some house sitting in Australia and/or Ireland by the new year.

I have not worked out wha to do yet, but I watch the emails with interest and know that there will be opportunties for me if I keep watching the website. Housecarers.

Signed Up Again

There is little chance of house sitting while I am living in China, but I still hope to continue my house sitting when this contract is over, though I may just go to do some other teaching in Vietnam. We will see.

But my subscription to Housecarers.com was up. Should I continue with it? I decided to pay up. It was not a lot of money and maybe early in 2009 I will be free to do some housesitting.

I do enjoy getting the daily updates on the available house sits, and I do look closely at the UK and Ireland offers too. I think I will do that one day.

Meanwhile it is teaching English in China that I do - and dream. Winter is approaching here, and I am going to purchase a down jacket that hopefully will keep me warm while here, and be useful when I go to colder climates in Europe. Hardly need it in Brisbane.
