Faith Coates and Alan Hogan do not have a lot of money, but they still have managed to travel the world. They divide their time between Spain, England, Ireland and Cyprus. They do not rent or own any of these homes. They are housesitters. Faith and Alan offer to look after people’s pets and property in exchange for free housing.
Faith never thought that she would be able to travel because of her limited income. She stated that she and her husband have been able to see places that they never thought that they would be able to see. Faith and Alan decided to start traveling after they retired.
They sold their house and most of their belongings and moved to Mexico. They looked online for people who were looking for long-term sittings. They do not pay their bills with housesitting. However, they are able to get free housing and utilities. They pay for their own transportation and food.
Faith and Alan earn an income from promoting their blog. Their life is fun, but it does have challenges. They once had to rush a dog to the vet because it had an allergic reaction. Faith and Alan plan to continue housesitting even if they decide to settle down in one place. They stated that housesitting allows them to try out different places to live.
Ireland is the place that they would like to settle permanently. They stated that it is stunningly beautiful.
