Each Christmas is the chance for me to house and cat sit somewhere new, and this year wasn’t going to be any different. It just wasn’t going to be overseas.
It’s been a long, very frustrating few months following my deportation from the United States. United States Customs and Border Protection says unpaid house sitting is work, and tourists need a work visa to do it on their travels.
After a crazy few months, I couldn’t wait to get away again even if it was only for one week.
I think everyone knows US Homeland Security put an end to my most recent house and cat sitting plans, but I wasn’t going to let that stop me holidaying somewhere else.
I’ve been pretty lucky to spend a considerable part of the last four or five years travelling around by way of house and cat sitting.
I’ve decided to do another frequently asked questions post after reading people’s comments on social media.
