In 2007 I began ‘grey nomading’ my way around our amazing country. About eight years ago I stumbled into house sitting and the Aussie House Sitting site was highly recommended. I found a placement within a few days of joining and have been a loyal and appreciative member since. House sitting has been fantastic, enabling me to spend time in every state and territory, to meet wonderful and interesting people and to care for a diverse range of animals. Aussie House Sitters staff have been wonderful and I sincerely thank you all for making my nomadic years so enjoyable and memorable. Allison
