House sitting offers you free accommodation in amazing locations around the world. Plus, you get the bonus of looking after some cute pets along the way! Sounds too good to be true huh?
The thing about us travel bloggers is we’re never in one place for long. But with that lifestyle comes the problem of where to live.
Last year, I spent several months living in London, a month in South America and jetted off on 47 flights to 16 different countries. In between trips I spent a week or two at home. Yes my family home. I knew it was temporary but it still took some getting used to! Goodbye London life, independence and quick drinks with friends after work.

Escape the crowds in Orlando and Miami and head to Martin County – the REAL Florida.
For many, holidays in Florida are focused on two things: theme parks and beaches. With warm weather pretty much guaranteed, the state receives planeloads of tourists every week. But beyond Orlando’s adrenaline rides, Miami’s nightlife and the idyllic beaches of the Keys… what else is there?
Well, around two hours north of Miami is Martin County. With miles of untouched Atlantic beaches, nature, plenty of art and culture, incredible wildlife, top places to eat and fun activities for all the family, it really is a great holiday destination. With Stuart (the heartbeat to the region) being voted America’s Happiest Seaside Town, I couldn’t wait to find out what made it so special.

I’ve already revealed a few of my highlights from 2016, so now it’s time to hand over to some of the top travel bloggers on the planet.
So when you travel for a living, is it harder to impress you? What makes a trip truly special? Is it all about luxury? Or do you want to return home after several adventures with a crazy story or two? Highlights for this bunch of bloggers range from icebergs in Greenland to paradise beaches in the Maldives, and even a few dragons! If you haven’t planned your travels for 2017, this should give you some serious inspiration.
It’s really hard to choose my favourite, but I think it has to be Indonesia! I was there for six weeks and fell head over heels for this incredible country. I loved everything; people, the food, and the stunning landscapes – not to mention the epic animal encounters I had, including swimming with manta rays and getting up close to some wild komodo dragons!
