WELCOME to housesittingtravellers.com.
We are Kirsty Carter and Lawrie Masterson, an Australian couple travelling the world housesitting. We love seeing other countries and how other people live, and we love animals, especially cats and dogs.
By the end of 2019 we will have spent time in about 15 different countries, including Vietnam, Egypt, the Canary Islands, the Netherlands, the US, Canada, Austria, Switzerland and Slovakia, and we’ll probably have at least touched down in a few others.
We will have seen huge metropolises such as Ho Chi Minh City and Cairo, and experienced life in dots on the map, with names such as Borinka and Brill.
To give ourselves wings, we sold our apartment, our car and basically anything else we couldn’t cram into two suitcases and told our family not to leave the light on for us. It was a huge decision, but so freeing in many ways.
So many people have told us how envious they are, and that they want to follow in our footsteps, so we decided to start putting together a kind of road map, by way of blogging on this site.
We hope you’ll come along for the ride (or the flight, or the train trip).
