I am a youthful and active retiree who travels a great deal. It's my passion in life.
Last year, I sold my beach headland home in southern Queensland and am currently itinerant while I consider exactly where it is I want to live. I've been using the Air BnB network and some private housesits to explore Sydney but am also wanting to spend more time in Europe and parts of Northern America.
I love the opportunity housesitting provides to have a base and a place I can care for like my own and also to live as a local. As a traveller (and, more recently, an itinerant) it's not practical for me (or fair for the animals) to have pets, so being able to "borrow" one or two from time to time is a happy compromise.
I enjoy both the cultural life that cities offer but also the joy of outdoor living - beaches, mountains, rainforests - and the peacefulness of smaller places. Quiet time is important to me. I'm a person who is unafraid of being alone.
