Hi!  We are Marie and Iain, long-term travellers and house-sitters. Welcome to our blog about our experiences on the road and as house-sitters  on the lovely island of Crete where we are now based.

We gave up our jobs in 2002 to travel the world and 10 years on we’re still going! Over the years we have travelled extensively in Europe, the Americas, Africa, Australasia and Asia. 

Through our blog posts we aim to:

  • record useful things we’ve learned on the road for our own future reference and for other travellers
  • provide advice on travelling and living abroad for long-term travellers
  • promote our House and Pet Sitting Services
  • share what we have learned with other house-sitters
  • share some of our travel experiences
Read on and maybe you’ll be inspired to live the dream too!

    Hi Iain and Marie, great to see you in Hong Kong and enjoyed hearing about your travel experiences over a few beers in Lan Kwai Fong. Safe journey to Singapore and beyond. What a small world it is bumping into you in IFC mall in Hong Kong!

    Hi Sean. Yes it was good to meet you and you are right. It IS a small world. Keep in touch and maybe we’ll catch up for a few beers again! We’re settling into our house-sit here in Singapore and it’s a touch warmer than Hong Kong – looking forward to cooling off in the pool tomorrow!
