  • SHE: Funding for our endless world tour is provided, oddly enough, by postcards.

  • SHE: And we save a ton of money by housesitting. It's free and beats living in hotels. Want super cool people like us looking after your pets and property while you're traveling? Visit to register, either as a housesitter or a home owner. We do it, and we love it! Thanks for listening to this episode. I’m Sheila Dee. 

  • EVO: And I am Evo Terra. Our theme music is by Kevin MacLeod at All other sounds, voices, and odd bits you hear were most likely created or captured by us. Visit to get more goodness from us and to see where opportunity will take us next. Thanks for again for listening and tell a friend about us. Now would be good.

New episodes of the The Opportunistic Travelers Podcast are available every Tuesday. Of course, Tuesday can be a very different thing depending on where we are in the world. Cheers!
