Travel Is Sweet
Dream It, Experience It, Treasure It
Where Are We: We are now in Austin Texas for our house sit until 29th of September. Just completed a 2150 km road trip from Phoenix.
Welcome all 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 traveling in 2004 and in 2018 changed our lifestyle and begun our lives as full time international house and pet sitters. Having sold our unit, car and most of our possessions we now travel full time. We decided to create our travel, house and pet sitting blog to share our experiences and journeys with you and hopefully give you some valuable tips and tricks. 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 organizing your plans. Our aim is to provide useful information that will make the process a lot easier for those new travelers and house sitters.
We have been fortunate to travel to four continents and sixteen countries at present. The USA and Canada have been our main ports. However, we have just completed stops in the UK, Europe and Thailand. Our motto of travel is sweet dream it, experience it, treasure it certainly rings true for us. We have had amazing experiences, but also some that we wouldn’t like to happen to anyone. All together they have creating spectacular memories and we have learnt many useful tidbits we are eager to pass on.

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.
