This is a long post outlining our lives during the NINE sea days during our Royal Caribbean Atlantic Ocean crossing.
After six months exploring the Eastern Hemisphere, six months and 10,000 miles in the USA, we are now on our way to our next big adventure: Europe!! But why live the life of an every day European traveler when there is a chance for me to make things more complicated? Rather than fly to Europe,... Continue Reading →
In our last two posts, we talked about our HipCamp stay at 99 Bottles Winery and Vineyard in Hayfield, Iowa. In the description, the host offered campers an opportunity to work in exchange for a free night. We've visited plenty of wineries, but never worked on one before. It seemed like a great way to save... Continue Reading →
While most of these posts have been about the house sits we've done, The Places We Live now includes a farm in Sherwood, Tennessee. Over the years, the farm has been transformed to include a horse camp and campground called The Bolo Club, which hosts RVs and tent campers alike. We booked our stay on... Continue Reading →
We had a wonderful time in houses sitting in central Melbourne and had far more fun adventures than I had time to write about. But now it's time to move on. We're now house sitting in a spacious home about an hour south of Melbourne with a beautiful dog named Bo. McCrae, Victoria McCrae is... Continue Reading →
Our adventure around the world continues with another edition of The Places We Live: Melbourne, Australia! A seven hour, red-eye flight got us from Kuala Lumpur to Melbourne for about $150 each. We left one growing and bustling city simply to land in a new one. We were immediately struck by the familiar sounds of... Continue Reading →
After two weeks in our hotel, we have finally moved on to our house sit in Kuala Lumpur! After such a great sit in Chengdu, I have spent every day working to get us more bookings. So far, I have a good chunk of the year booked up, and more applications still under consideration. As... Continue Reading →
For our first two weeks in Kuala Lumpur, we are staying in Hote123, a cheap hotel in the neighborhood of Pudu. Pudu does not offer much in the way of tourist attractions, but there is a convenient KL Rapid Transit stop and a nice variety of local restaurants. Once we got use to it (and got over the fact that the internet is very spotty), we found ourselves really enjoying our quaint hotel in this local neighborhood.
Since we've been here, we estimate that we have saved around $200 on accommodations alone. But there are other perks as well. Not only do we have lovable Lucy to hang out with, but we have a bike to use ($5 savings) and a kitchen to cook in ($50 savings). In two weeks, we have saved over $250 by staying here with Lucy.
