All in Alternative Lodging
Learn how we took travel award hacking to the extreme and got 41 hotel room nights free with Hilton using hotel rewards and promotions. And, we’re not just talking zero cash out of pocket, we used less than 65 reward points per night on a normally 5,000 point room. Not only did we essentially stay free, we also extended our Hilton Honors Diamond Status for another year!
We never would’ve thought that when we started to travel house sitting would turn into a lifestyle for us. But now we’ve house sat extensively and have nearly 20 house sit jobs under our belts. Our latest house sitting job took us to Colorado where we enjoyed a comfortable home at the foot of the Rockies, with the most adorable, fun, and amusing dog and cat!
Many people have been amazed at the places house sitting has taken us (Paris, London, Amsterdam, Budapest, and many more!) and ask us how we do it. If you’re wondering the same, read on as we share our experience of applying, being selected for, and actually undertaking a house sit in Athens, Greece.
We set our sights on Paris! It was a city on our bucket list, one we really hoped we’d be able to see on our European travel adventure.
Finally, we were in Zurich! It was a bit of a debacle, but we made it!
In many ways, finding a house sit is like looking for a job. We need to find an intriguing one, apply, and go through an interview process.
Sleeping isn’t when the memories and the life changing events happen.
