Gratitude and house sitting in Spain

The Swedish pool-boy and I.

The happiness over finding this way of travelling, and the wonderful people and places we’ve come to over the years is overwhelming.

After a looong winter in Sweden we’re now in Spain to house sit for a month. Or, Anders will stay the whole month and I’ll go back to work after two weeks here. 

This is it! Beautiful setting.

We found this great place via Trusted Housesitters, and soon got a positive response from the owners. Let’s face it – we’ve gotten good reviews which helps us when applying for new sits.

One of the two cats.

Here there are two cats to look after, and an extra house to check on once in a while. It’s a beautiful location in the country side and there’s even a pool to swim in when the weather is good.

Rain today.

We got here last Sunday and have had good weather this far. Today it’s raining = less watering for us and happy plants 🙂

These first days we’ve gotten to know the place and the cats a bit better, enjoyed the weather by the pool, cooked some great food and have enjoyed tapas, sangria and good local cava outside.

Our own patatas bravas, and a kick-ass dip sauce.

Since we’re outside of town, we need a car to get to the store etc and we probably want to go to the beach some day and also do some sightseeing. So we’ve rented a car for the whole month Anders will be here.

This is one of the perks of staying for free when house sitting – there’s money over to spend on other things than accomodation.

Wild Thyme and Rosemary by the road.

Take care and remember to dream big!
