We are Kirsty Carter and Lawrie Masterson, an Australian couple travelling the world housesitting. We love experiencing other countries and how other people live, and we love animals, especially cats and dogs.
During 2019 we visited 15 countries, including Vietnam, Egypt, the Canary Islands, the Netherlands, the US, Canada, Austria, Switzerland and Slovakia, and we touched down at airports in a few others.
We saw 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 car, our apartment and basically anything else we couldn’t cram into two suitcases and told our families not to leave a 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 started putting together a kind of road map, by way of blogging on this site.
When the world gets the all-clear to travel again, we hope you’ll come along for the ride (or the flight or the train trip).
Here’s a sample of our five-star reviews*
