Travel Is Sweet

Dream It, Experience It, Treasure It

Where Are We: Arrived at our house sit on the Gold Coast and cooler weather :-). Time to catch up with family and friends

Welcome to Travel is Sweet. Our names are Carolyn and Andrew Deagle a married couple from the beautiful Gold Coast in Queensland Australia. We fell in love with travelling, in 2004 and now travel, as often as we can. So you can follow our journey, we have decided to create our own Travel blog to share our experiences with you and hopefully give you some valuable tips and tricks. As I am a keen photographer, we 'd also like to share some beautiful photos, fun videos and entertaining stories we have gained in our travels over the years.

This big wonderful world offers so many travel opportunities and for those yet to travel, it can be a daunting task of knowing where to start, when organising your plans. Our aim is to provide useful information that will make the process a lot easier for those new to travel. Carolyn and I have been fortunate enough to travel to several continents and countries, from Canada to China with stops in the US and New Zealand, Travel is sweet! To say we have had some amazing experiences, would be an understatement , we have also experienced some things that we wouldn’t like to happen to anyone. We have created spectacular memories and we have learnt many useful tidbits we are eager to share.

Travel Footprints

Over the course of our travels, house and pet sitting, we have journeyed to many a destination leaving behind our travel footprints. Beginning with our honeymoon in 1987 all the way through to our current house sit in 2019. We thought it would be informative to list our travel destinations separate to our house and pet sitting placements. We shall also include the wonderful and interesting animals we have had the pleasure to be step parents for. Of course, we will update our list as we venture into new destinations and enjoy more pets.
