Hi, I’m Lisa!
I left a corporate job in the UK in 2015 and enjoyed an epic self-driven road trip around Australia before exploring Sydney from top to bottom for over three years by house sitting!
I now live in Sydney’s beautiful Northern Beaches and want my travel and migration guides to inspire you to travel more and plan your holiday, road trip or big move Down Under.
I’ve lived in Sydney since 2016 and explored this beautiful city from top to bottom by house sitting.

My biggest money-saving tip for travellers in Australia is to house sit instead of paying expensive hotel fees.
You’ll get free accommodation in locals’ homes while they’re on holiday in return for looking after their lovely pets!
Pet sitting is so highly in demand in Australia that I’ve saved over $70k in rent since moving here! Plus, I’ve been paid even more than that from running my pet-sitting business in Sydney!
