Hello! We are Pablo and Katie and we recently just returned to the states after touring the entire country of Mexico by bicycle. We plan on cycling across the US as well, making our way slowly to the east coast to Alabama where Katie is from. We plan on housesitting in different states and cities along the way. We are extremely clean and organized, non smokers and trustworthy. We spend a lot of time in the kitchen playing with recipes and cooking healthy meals. We are very relaxed people who enjoy all things outdoors, telling jokes, and meeting new people. As much as we love spending time in nature and being outdoors, we find it extremely necessary to take time for ourselves indoors in solitude.
Housesitting gives us the opportunity to work on our freelance jobs and to spend time with animals which is one of our favorite things to do. We both work for Wag! (Dog walking/pet sitting app) and can provide several positive references from that. Something we value about housesitting is it allows us to develop a personal relationship with the homeowners based on trust and integrity instead of the exchange of money for services. When we give someone our word, we follow through.
Meditation is very important to us and we try to live every moment in the present. We adapt quickly to different environments and situations. We are minimalists who enjoy traveling slowly and low budget. We use Couchsurfing during our travels as well as Warm Showers and air bnb. We can provide good references from all of these sites.
Pablo is 35 and passionate about filming and is currently documenting our travels. He was born in Arizona but grew up in Argentina. He spent 8 months traveling around Patagonia where he first started housesitting. He housesat in California and Oregon several times during 2017 and 2018 through HouseCarers and . He was responsible for taking care of animals and general maintenance of the houses and gardens.
Katie is 25 and was born and raised in Alabama. She has traveled around Asia and lived and worked in Australia for a year. When she returned to the States, she moved to Portland, Oregon and nannied for two young kids as well as kept the house clean and tidy.
We met in Portland and fell in love with each other. We shared our love for cycling and traveling, and came to the conclusion that it would only make sense to do it together. Bike touring an entire country has not only taught us patience and understanding as a couple, but with ourselves as well. We look forward to returning to the States to spend time in a new area resting our minds and bodies, and hanging out with animals. Spending time with pets teaches you compassion and recharges you.
We are responsible and understand what it means to leave your home and pets in the hands of another person which is why we will enjoy keeping you updated on what’s going on. Because we are freelancers, we will be home most of the time, therefore making it easy to get in touch with us. Feel free to ask us any questions you might have! We are available to schedule a video chat at your convenience. You can find all of our references in our profile. Thank you!
