Other Projects

One of the best things about our peripatetic lifestyle as international house sitters is that affords us the time, space, and energy to pursue projects that we are passionate about. Without long commutes or the draining take-home baggage of the 9-to-5, we can develop our creative sides and draw on our house sitting and travel experiences for inspiration.
