There Was a Conference for That
Updated: Nov 30, 2020
Before we started house and pet sitting, I discovered House Sitting Magazine. It's a resource for anyone who wants to know more about this life- or travel-style. The magazine is published by UK natives Ian and Vanessa, who have been full time sitters for several years. Early last year, they decided to put on the first ever conference for house and pet sitters. It was way more work than they anticipated but they pushed on and in late September the Village Hotel in Swindon, England welcomed 100 or so new, experienced and just-thinking-about-it folks for two days of stories, info and entertainment. We wouldn't have made a trip to England to do this, but as we were already there, we couldn't think of a reason not to go. Met so many great people, heard some great stories and were inspired by the whole experience.
