Hi there! We are Jill and Chris.
In 2017, we spent 9 months selling all of our possessions, including 2 vehicles, our much loved house, and lots of stuff, in order to live a life of travel. We also closed down 2 of our businesses, and rid ourselves of any type of overhead that would limit our potential to freely move around the world.
We come from Canada and collectively have experience with many types of pets.... cats to sheep and many in between! Chris, specifically, grew up in rural Saskatchewan, and animals were a huge part of his childhood. His family rescued many animals, and at one time, his Aunt had more than 10 dogs living with them, most of them rescues. They also had many different cats, and he was very involved in their well being from a young age.
I am a House Painter, Writer, Artist and a general handy woman, and Chris is a Landscaper, Cook, Artist and also a House Painter. We are both avid gardeners and love tending to plants and growing our own food when possible. We have spent the last 4 years sculpting our back yard from a rectangle of grass, to a beautiful park like oasis.
Together we make a great team. We are both very honest, reliable and hard working, non-smoking, and get along great with other people. We are excited to explore new countries around the globe, while folding ourselves into the fabric of each community we visit.
I am also a very good communicator and I beleive that it is essential to keep homeowners informed as to what is going on. I don't want anyone to worry and am happy to communicate by What's App or Messenger or any other means that you need.
Please visit my travel blog link at the top of our profile to see more of what we are all about. Or visit our Facebook or Instagram pages of the Just Some Wandering title. We both speak conversational Spanish, so communication in Central and South America is easy for us.
Thanks for reading! We hope that we can help you with the well being of your house and your pets, while you yourself seek the freedom to travel!
