New Jersey and New York

We didn't want to leave Vermont since the forests had not yet reached their autumn colour peak, but we had booked a housesit in New Jersey, so leave we did. Once we got adjusted to leaving, we started looking forward to what was next. Our New Jersey housesit homeowner had suggested stopping at Storm King... Continue Reading →

West Sussex

We spent quite a bit of time in the United Kingdom a few years ago, but didn't get to the south coast. For this trip, we needed a week out of the Schengen visa region and were lucky enough to book a house sit in Chichester in the county of West Sussex with just one... Continue Reading →

Finally, we are off again

The world is certainly not healthy yet, but we've decided it's time to expand our nomadic borders from the two provinces in Canada that we've been pinballing around in for the last two years. On Monday, May 2, 2022, we board our first plane since being recalled from New Zealand in March 2020, and off... Continue Reading →

So That Was 2021

Ok, so we're over a month into 2022 and I'm finally getting around to summing up 2021. That's pretty indicative of my lack of inspiration to post during Covid times. This blog is supposed to be all about our nomadic lifestyle and that lifestyle has been severely curtailed for the last two years (but we... Continue Reading →

Christchurch and Goodbye

Christchurch was supposed to be our last stop in New Zealand, but not for another two months. Following a two-week house sit in Christchurch, we planned a two-week loop around the central and southern parts of the South Island before completing a three-week house sit on the coast and then returning to fly out of...

Snells Beach, North Island

We were incredibly lucky to have secured a house sit in the village of Snells Beach taking care of a beautiful new home and its gardens, and a gentle border collie named Pip.

Ajijic

Noise was the theme of our time in Ajijic. Most of the time it was happy noises, sometimes just a little too much (or too late or too early), and once it was joyful noise that soothed our souls. We bused directly from our last house sit in San Miguel de Allende to another housesit... Continue Reading →

Reconnecting

July was all about reconnecting with family in Vancouver and Calgary. We traded Artie for our car, checked in again with our moms in the Vancouver area, and then drove the 900km from Vancouver to Calgary. Since we were a little ahead of schedule, we stayed the night in Sicamous and had enough time to... Continue Reading →

House sit: We’ve chosen Metchosin

Most of our posts are focused on the locations we are visiting rather than on the details of our accommodation. We are now in the beautiful village of Metchosin, just outside of Victoria, British Columbia, but it is our accommodation that is the adventure, thus the focus of this missive. We are house sitting here.... Continue Reading →

Calgary in … spring?

It was hard to leave the warmth of Southeast Asia at the beginning of March. We had only been there for 3 months, which seemed much too short, but we had medical commitments in Calgary, so leave we did. After an overnight near the Vancouver International Airport, we hopped into our car (which had kindly... Continue Reading →
