Like so many of our members, after 18 long months @PeterMac can’t wait to get back to travelling again. His first stop? Bali and Indonesia!

It was all going down in our Travel Talk category this month, with @PeterMac sharing his amazing knowledge and experiences from his time pet sitting in paradise. Where’s first up on your 'to-visit' list? Our Travel Talk category is a great place to discuss destinations and travel tips, so make sure to pop on over!

Quote of the month

This month’s Quote of the month comes from Forum member @Amparo, in the topic ‘Gratitude for Home and Pet Sitting Lifestyle’.

“It’s so wonderful to explore and discover new people and places. But the best part is when you discover we are not so different, only on the surface and the things we share enriches us all.” 

Wise words that we think all TrustedHousesitters would agree with! 

Photo of the month

This month, our Forum members shared so many special photos, that it was impossible to pick just one! 

So this month we’re highlighting our top three photos of the month…

This beautiful pet sitting moment of Goldie enjoying her daily walk in the Andes was shared by Forum user @Dannep.

This was Forum member @Lorry’s first-ever post — and what a great post it was! This is the adorable Dylan from @Lorry's recent Edinburgh house sit.

Moo-ve over, cats and dogs! It's time for a different kind of ‘Boop’ with Dexter, shared by Forum user @Samox24 from their amazing farm sit.
