December 3rd Read in 8 minutes This is the story about our first housesit, how we stumbled into it, and how it kicked off our nomad adventure. The idea of moving out of our rented flat and nomading had been in semi-serious discussion for a while, since mid Since Emma and I both work from home most of the time, it seemed like a good opportunity to broaden our horizons.
Once of the biggest challenges to housesiyting it work was budgeting. I wanted this journey to be sustainable, not to be limited by the savings we were draining. Is there a way to balance housesits with Airbnb?

Say, if we spent two weeks of the month housesitting and the other two Airbnbing, then we could easily afford to stay at a decent Airbnb. It still felt like a big leap though. What if we hated housesitting?
What if we wanted to stop after a month? After all the effort of getting rid of lo of stuff and furniture, getting a storage space, and moving everything out; the payoff could be short lived.
A spur of the moment -up I remember sitting on the sofa one weekend in early April, bored. While Emma was away in Chicago, I decided to look into finding Housesits. After browsing a variety of sites, TrustedHousesitters. The other sites had terrible des, I really couldn't imagine spending any amount of time on them. I created a barebones profile and jumped through all the low-hanging verification hoops to build up some trust.
Then I closed my laptop and forgot all about it. Emma was back.
I recieved a unexpected in my inbox. Someone had sent us a message on Trusted Housesitters. Dear Lewis and Emma, Just wondered if you are interested in a housesit from 17th—21st April? Have you any references from other sources? Kind regards.

I rushed through an explanation of what I did when she was away and why Janet messaged us. Housssitting were local to her, and it was a short notice housesit. For some reason she was willing to take a chance and reach out to someone with no review or references. Emma and I talked it over. Hello Janet Yes we're interested. Let's see what I can give you in terms of reference, I have ten reviews on Airbnb from onwards, all positive.

Would you like me to send you screenshots of them? Let me know. Lewis They were happy with a reference with Steve, who kindly whipped up some words on short notice—as he is known to do—and sent it over. I would be grateful if you could help us out. It will not be the first time we have taken first-time housesitters you have to start somewhere! I will now read the reference Steve has sent us. Do you have Skype?
One short slightly-awkward Skype call later, we were confirmed to housesit in two days.
Meeting Janet and Depp From the second we walked through the door, you could tell what kind of dog Depp was. A year old Border Collie, he instantly melted onto the floor the second we said hi and started stroking him. Janet offered us tea, and as we sat down at the kitchen table he rest his chin on our laps and lent against us lovingly. He was a very soppy dog. Janet was an excellent, experienced host. Tp had cooked dinner for us and her daughter, an opera singer more on that later.
Janet told us all about the many other house sitters she had. After dinner she and her husband showed us around the house, and told us what we might need to do in hhousesitting unlikely event that something went wrong. Like where the water mains valve and the fuse box is. After that, Janet took us on a walk with Depp.

This has become a regular hosesitting important part of the house sitting experience. Walking under the Gatwick flight path We were staying in a big old country house, near Gatwick Airport, directly under the flight path in fact. From our room we could see fields with horses staring back at us or nibbling the grass. The garden ran into large field, a great place to exhaust an energetic collie.
They were quiet. And I enjoyed walking with Depp in the mornings or during a break from work in the afternoon, chatting to him as we were playing with his ball. Depp, being a collie, had a housewitting way with balls.

He could fit about three balls in his mouth at once, and would trot around the field with them triumphantly. You needed to bring a decent load with you. The path through the field lead to these magnificent bluebell carpeted woods. It was the perfect time of year for them, and it was like walking through a fairytail setting. Along hohsesitting path in the bluebell woods, Depp had been attacked by another dog.
Janet told us the story, another house sitter was walking him when he ran through a gate, and into the path of two other dogs. He must of startled them and they attacked him. I think it was quite bad and he needed stitches.

I was politely trying not to listen, but with nothing else to do. It was a little awkward. As our first housesitting experience, it was a positive one. Janet was very experienced, which helped us. And she left us a glowing review, which helped us apply to more housesits afterwards. It gave us the confidence houesitting make a big decision; move out of our flat and start housesitting full-time.
