Hi, I’m Karen – proud Aussie, Wife, Mum of 2, creator of Worldschooling Central.com and Full-Time International House Sitter!
For the past 2.5 years, my family and I have been traveling FULL TIME, staying in incredible homes all over the world FOR FREE! From Mexico, Spain, Sweden, and Thailand to Singapore, South Korea, China and of course Australia, we’ve been exploring the world and receiving FREE accommodation! Want to know how? I want to teach you!
In 2014, our lives were very different. By all accounts we were living the “Aussie Dream” (much like the American Dream I’d imagine!) We had a beautiful, newly built home, we owned a small family business, my husband was working offshore in a high paying job, both kids were in school… life should have been incredible! But it wasn’t. Life was just too serious. We weren’t having any fun. I was working so hard I was literally missing out on watching my children grow. I knew there had to be more to life!
So, after discovering the phrase “Location Independence”, my husband and I decided to make a major change. We sold almost everything we owned and decided to travel the world full time! How do we afford it? In our pre-travel planning days, we discovered the concept of Housesitting. Free accommodation in exchange for caring for a home and pets while homeowners travel. We’ve now completed more than 30 sits and paid for less than 60 nights of accommodation per year since we began our travels!
And now I'm going to show you EXACTLY how we do it!
