It’s amazing sometimes how perfect times, plans and needs match. Yesterday we saw a listing we were interested in on Trusted Housesitters, and responded to it. Tonight we had a Skype call with the house- and dog owner in Sri Lanka and have agreed on going there late January for a week of house sitting.
And we’re welcome to come early, or to pass by and leave some stuff if we need to, and we can stay a few extra nights if we want to! In other words, she seems to be very flexible and generous.
This is something that has struck us time after time over the past 14 months of traveling and house sitting: We meet so many people who are open minded, generous and welcoming.
Despite all the fear that resides in some people and although we hear of humans feeling distrust, there’s a huge chunk of trust, faith in mankind and love for others out here as well.
We love being part of the trusting community, and hope that our experiences, as well as our being in the world, also becomes a part of a larger movement where we together can bring more trust back into people.
