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…

    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.”

      I love that Louis Armstrong song and agree so much with that sentiment.

    • 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

    • 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…
