Johannesburg, South Africa

In a series of house sitting interviews that took place over 3 days, we faced the options of going to Ireland, Seattle or South Africa. And while we’ve never been to Ireland, we felt that we would have had enough of the cooler climes and opted to head to South Africa. First stop? Johannesburg!

South Africa

That's right, the entire damn thing! We've decided we're going to road trip around this beautiful country and really try to get a feel for such a massively diverse place. We'll likely pop into Swaziland and maybe Lesotho but our main focus is going to be on SA itself. We're super excited to be exploring this complicated country.

Portishead, UK

We're going to be minding a gorgeous, fluffy Siberian kitty in Portishead, UK. We'll be close enough to Wales to finally do some investigating and close enough to go back to Bath. It's going to be chilly and perhaps a bit snowy, but hey, we need some winter back in our lives. And if things get too bad, we will hunker down in our cottage with the kitty and the fire until it all blows over.

Zac is heading to Los Angeles. We had the great fortune of sitting for Baba the gorgeous Maine Coon last Thanksgiving and Zac is going back for more.

Scotland

We're heading back to Scotland!!! Scotland has proven to be one of our absolute favorite places with some of our favorite people living in and around the area. So when a group of our friends said they wanted to have a reunion in Scotland for two weeks, we could not say no. We're so looking forward to hanging out with friends and doing some great walking in this beautiful place. Oh and I'll be reunited with sheep!!!

Gjovik, Norway

What's that you say? You don't know where Gjovik, Norway is? Well, we don't really either except that it is north of Oslo. We are incredibly ecstatic to have the opportunity to house sit for two cats during the summer season in this beautiful place. It's a long time before we will be here, but we just keep talking about it. Norway.

Gothenburg, Sweden

We're going to spend a few days in Gothenburg! Well, we'll be right near here for our sit in Hönö, so it felt right to spend a few days in what seems to be a beautiful city. We're hoping to be able to catch an outdoor music festival and just generally enjoy summer life in a Swedish city before moving on to Norway. We're really looking forward to checking out what Gothenburg has to offer.

Hono, Sweden

Hono, Sweden. Been longing to visit? We didn't know this place existed until yesterday when I noticed a posting for house sitters. It's perfect timing as we make our way to Norway and the island looks incredible and what's more...the cat we will be watching is fabulous! While we didn't specifically have Hono on our wish list, we did have a very strong desire to explore more of Sweden. We're so excited to be doing so this summer.

Sitges/Barcelona, Spain

When Zac found out that one of his aunts and cousin will be in Sitges (just outside Barcelona) right around when we are expected to go to Norway, he said "we must go visit them!". And so we are. A short 4 day jaunt to the area to see some of our favorite people should be just what we need right about then.

Singapore

Truth be told, we both wanted to go to Singapore for a while. When we noticed there's usually good flights to Europe from here, we decided it was a must. So we are doing a quick few days exploring the city and eating our hearts out of whatever cuisine we can before we head to Europe for a while. This will be our last hurrah in Asia but hopefully not our last. Luckily we're missing the Cheetoh - Un showdown by a few days.

Bali, Indonesia

Ahhh Bali. We were going to go all out and do a full yoga retreat, but then we decided we wanted to experience a bit of what this place has to offer. So we decided to go à la carte and put together a "retreat" for ourselves. We're going to stay in Ubud and experience the hustle of the city and then retreat back to our homestay. Of course they'll be yoga and some amazing vegan food mixed in. We're looking forward to a bit of pampering.

Japan

We are so happy to be returning to Japan. We absolutely loved our first visit here a few years ago and are so excited to be coming back. We're going to be focusing on the southern island and doing lots of hiking and onsen. Hopefully they'll be no typhoons, earthquakes or volcanic eruptions while we're here. Keep your fingers crossed!

Taiwan

Taiwan

Taiwan doesn't seem to be high on many tourist destinations, but some early research has shown that there's a ton to do on this beautiful island. It's likely going to be steamy (it gets super humid here) and reportedly the "no-see-ums" bite like hell. We'll see how we can weather those storms while cat sitting in Taipei for a few weeks and then walking on the many incredible looking trails.

We're heading back to the US. Well, just for a little while. We're going to be house sitting a couple of cats just outside of Portland, Oregon. We love this area and are looking forward to exploring the area some more. It's going to be rainy and chilly, but hopefully we can get outside and do some walking. If not, we know there are tons of good cafes around.

We're so excited! We're doing a house sit in Los Angeles over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Pretty fucking fantastic.

We didn't have it in mind to go to Merida, but a good friend of ours is getting married and we thought, well, we must go! And so we are off to Merida. Now that we've been doing some research it looks like we are likely going to enjoy ourselves immensely. Oh and we are going to eat well too...

We left ourselves a very small patch of time to be able to visit Barcelona after our time in Morocco. We've both wanted to visit Barcelona for a very long time and it was a great place to jump in between Morocco and Mexico. There's much going on there these days so it such be extra exciting.

Morocco is huge. It's also a place we have both wanted to go for as long as we can remember. I just keep saying "I can't believe we haven't been to Morocco yet" over and over. Well, no we are. We are going to spend a little more than a month exploring the famed cities of this land along with a Berber village homestay and some time in the desert. Never mind that Zac and I both have issues with sand.

I'm just gonna do it again...We're going to Portugal!!! Whew, glad I finally got that out there. Of course we are super excited. We're going to take 12 days and do a quick little tour of as much of the country as we can. We hypothesize that this will only wet our appetites for more. I can't wait to see.

Milano. We passed through here on the train many, many years ago and we are finally going to have a few days to explore all the city has to offer. This is a prefect place to head after our time in Vermiglio and will serve as our location for our flight to our next adventure. But don't think we aren't excited about heading to Milan. We are.

Armenia

We're headed to Armenia! Partly because it's Georgia's neighbor. Mostly because we've been intrigued by this small country for a while. And then there's the ever present Ararat that draws people in. We're really looking forward to our time here and plan do to some good walking. We're getting up close and personal with the mountains and villages throughout this land. We can't wait.

Winter in Brittany. We've been told to expect blustery and rainy. We can't wait. We'll have been in Scotland prior to this so think we will be well settled into blustery and rainy by this point. Our time here will be spent in a small village with a house that has a loom and a studio for Jill to use. Who knows what Zac will be doing. Jill will be busy.
