Travel Theme :Animals (2)

In 2010 when we did the BIG trip around Australia that took us a year, we discovered “house sitting”. It was a great way to have a break from the road, and a bit more room to spread out. We like living and travelling in Matilda and have adjusted to the lack of space, but, oh boy, it was good to have a proper kitchen, toilet and bathroom just down the hallway, a place we could call home for a few weeks.

The bonus was having pets to pamper, take for walks, discovering new areas, and a warm furry body to cuddle. (I don’t mean Jack 🙂 ).

We did 3 different house sits during the year and these are the animals we cared for…

Ailsa from “Where’s my backpack” inspired us this week with the theme Animals. I have been so inspired that this is my second post about animals. Click on Ailsas blog to see many more animals…

  1. Pomm-
    How are you and Matilda doing now?
    Reading your blog reminds of Louis Armstrong, “And I think to myself, what a wonderful world..Everything for you and for me.”

      Well lots of dramas will be doing a post later…
      I love that Louis Armstrong song and agree so much with that sentiment.


  2. What a wonderful time you must have had, such adorable animals!


  3. What a lovely way to see the world and to meet lots of new four legged friends; must confess to having a bit of a soft spot for Thunder


    • He was a real softy. He had his own bed but each morning when I woke up I would find him curled up on the end of my bed and looking at me with those big mournful eyes


  4. I’ve looked at the House Sitting sites a few times and am seriously considering it when my circumstances allow – thanks for this post, these guys certainly know how to pose 🙂


    • House carers are a very good site. $55 per year subs, but that is more than off set by the saving of accomadation costs after a weeks sit. Also a good way to have a holiday in some of the nicest places…


  5. what a great reason to housesit!


  6. Love these pictures! They are all adorable, and it must have been wonderful caring for them.
