Hi, I am Faith and I am a housesitting freelance writer. I hate traveling, but I am ‘visiting’ the world through housesitting and lucky enough to be a freelance writer. I am hoping that soon there will be a transporter so that I can totally avoid airports and all the crap associated with the actual travel part of the journey. Having said that I love living in other countries and experiencing the day to day reality of life abroad. Sort of an ex-pat/traveler but spending quality time in various countries and really getting to know a local region is my idea of heaven.
I recently retired from a community theatre in London Ontario. When my husband (Alan) retired we decided that we would follow our dreams and move to Mexico. So in June of 2014 we did. We ended up on the gulf side of the Yucatan in a tiny fishing village called Chelem. We had an amazing time in Mexico but after a year we got itchy feet and decided that we would go and see more of the world via housesitting.
We are also travelling on a fairly limited budget so not paying rent/mortgages and bills really helps with the budget. I love to find ways to see things and experience touristy venues at a budget price. Housesitting makes all that possible and we are very lucky that we have both Canadian and EU citizenship to make this kind of travel possible.
I am a fanatic researcher and information freak. I want to know everything about the place where I am staying from the history to the bus routes. I get very tired of reading blogs and information about the top ten places to visit when they don’t provide a means to get there or a cost when you are there. I love to share information as well so if you have a question about a place feel free to ask.
I have years of experience as a writer and have spent huge amounts of time writing grants and government proposals, ghostwriting cooking and travel books and web content. I am also a specialist in business plans and social enterprise and have written many a business plan. If you would like to work with me give me a shout.
