The first little expedition is over.
In the next few weeks we plan to take a break from being on the road. This is to help with the finances, with Caravan Park Fees and fuel prices when travelling starting to burn a hole in the pocket.
We registered with a couple of House Sitting agencies through their websites and left a profile on one of them. From that we have been contacted by 2 different house owners who are taking short holidays and need someone to look after their homes and pets while they are away.
We start the first of these in the Adelaide Hills in a few days and then travel to Victoria for a house sit near Geelong.
This experience is one that we are looking forward to as it will give the bank balance a bit of a boost, and also provides us with a chance to explore new regions while based there without having to find the cost of park fees. This is another way to get to see the places that we intend to visit, and it appears that there are plenty of opportunities for house sitting. The biggest obstacle for us will be finding places that have room for the caravan while we are sitting.
We will add the experiences here on this site.
