Today I’m interviewing Rita Golden Gelman – an extraordinary and delightful world traveler. Now 80 years old, she spent 30 years of her later life without a permanent residence. Author of the New York Times bestseller: Tales of a Female Nomad: Living at Large in the World, she has endless travel stories and lessons to share.
In today’s episode, I spend time talking to International Pet Sitter Kelly Scott about how she has embarked on an adventure of a lifetime. Only a year ago, she took the leap and quit her job, sold almost everything and headed out to travel the world, one pet sit at a time. Kelly shares the ins and outs of booking pet sitting gigs in different countries, what the job entails, and how to address some of the challenges that come up.
In the first episode of the Globetrotter Lounge, Katharine Harvey – project manager and Seattle native – shares the multiple ways she’s been able to travel more. Extended trips have become her top travel strategy – with month long stays in France, Peru, Argentina and Belize. Her story includes pet sitting, house swapping and living in Mexico for a year. She shares tips and resources – and outlines how she was able to make travel and living abroad a priority.
