After a birthday trip to Chile, Suzanne and Mitch Rutledge realized that long term travel might be something they could ACTUALLY do! They got back home and started planning;
What would they do with their house? How would their son’s school take the news that they were taking an extended trip abroad? Where were they going to go?!
As they began preparing for their trip things began falling into place, and here they are, on the other end, talking about their experiences as seasoned world travelers!
Suzanne, Mitch, and Luke (the youngest person to ever be on the podcast) join me today to chat about getting out the door and deep into a 9-month adventure around the world, along with some of the best tips that they learned along the way.
Today Heather and I list the top 15 websites that we LOVE to use to plan our travels. If we’re paying for plane tickets (yes, it happens) we know where to go.
Train tickets? Check.
We’ve even got a ton of sites for accommodations and a great one to help budget your travels.
And of course, you need to know what to do when you get there!
If we use it, we’ve linked it and there are some great resources here to help you plan your trip from the moment the idea pops into your head to the moment you return home, exhausted, but thankful for the entire experience.
What are some of your favorite travel sites? Let us know in the comments below!
I LOVE housesitting because it offers an incredible opportunity for all people involved.
For the homeowner, they know that they’ll have people taking care of and watching after their house while they are away (and in some cases, their pets as well).
For the traveler, it provides the unique ability to stay in some amazing places across the world while having all the conveniences of home – and sometimes even more – for free.
Housesitting is part of the new wave of accommodations opportunities that every traveler should look to take advantage of.
From short weekend stays in penthouses in Manhattan to long term opportunities on remote islands, Trusted Housesitters has a wide variety of options, and with new ones being posted every day, there’s always something for everyone!
So, what are you waiting for?
Sign up today (don’t forget the discount code) and let me know what amazing housesits you’ll be applying for in the comments below!
What if when you traveled, you could stay in these types of places?
And better yet, what if they were free?
With housesitting, they can be!
All over the world, people are opening up their homes for others to come and stay in while they are gone. And in return for looking after their home and sometimes their pet, you get to stay in their place, for free!
It really is a win-win for both parties involved, and explains why housesitting is quickly becoming one of the fastest-growing ways to travel.
Today, Andy Peck, the Godfather of Housesitting and founder of the biggest housesitting site in the world, Trusted Housesitters, sits down with us to talk about the ins and outs of housesitting.
From how to give yourself the best chance to score your first housesit to some of the best places he’s ever seen, Andy breaks down housesitting from A-Z.
Oh, and he also gives Extra Pack of Peanuts listeners a special discount on a Trusted Housesitter membership (see instructions below)!
