House Sitting: travel without silver

A missionary who loves traveling discovered House Sitting and has been touring the world for 17 years. We tell you what a holiday is like that never ends.

Argentines around the world

For most people, there are not many ways to travel the world. Basically there is only one: save a lot of money. Silver for passage, visa, food, lodging and a long etcetera. Traveling isn't free, is it?

One good day, the missionary Bella Fazio, browsing the web, discovered an interesting system for traveling without money. Its name is House Sitting, a practice that is based on a simple principle across various digital platforms. The idea is that one person offers his house empty, in exchange for another to stay in it to take care of it. Lodging for care, you like?

House Sitting is an exchange that includes pets, many homes and free travel around the world. “You have to register on a website, search for offers and apply. There are also responsibilities to fulfill depending on each owner. From watering plants to taking care of your pets: from dogs to llamas,” explains Bella.

Months became years

It all came up by chance. Bella set up a profile and started looking for offers for what she planned to be a six-month tour. Together with her boyfriend they embarked on a journey that became an adventure that lasted for years. They both met Australia, Tasmania and the Pacific Islands.

It's like being temporary owners of super houses, usually these are large residences, with swimming pool, cars and incredible views. The quality of life in Australia is wonderful,” says Bella.“The owners of this type of housing travel a lot and do not want to leave their home alone or their little animals.”

“It's a unique, dreamt state,” says Bella. “We've been on vacation for a long time, a vacation that never ends.” The missionary left Argentina as an 18-year-old girl, today she is 35 and never returned again. “We're always in holiday mode.”

The missionary described how they never suffered any negative consequences of the experience. “We never had a problem: neither with the owners nor in the houses we care for. We don't mind moving around all the time either. We're nomads.”
