There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
Home Sweet Home House Sitting!
28, Master's Student (USA)
I am a 28 year old traveler, and have just recieved my working holiday visa. I am hoping to find a job in Melbourne or Sydney within the next few months, but would like to spend some time housesitting while I am searching and possibly work part time and do a longer term housesit. I am from the US, where I'm getting my master's in social work, and am currently taking a year off in order to work and travel in Australia. I have two dogs of my own at home, and I am an animal lover, so I am more than happy to take care of your animals while you are away. In my free time I enjoy running, cooking, reading, and hiking. I am available to skype or chat on the phone if you are interested and have more questions for me.
Please let me know if you have any questions at all!
