2 and a half years in Asia…it’s incredible how quickly the time has passed. We have only 2 more months in Indonesia before our brief return home and then our eventual move to France.
Preparations are underway to map out our 6 week journey around Indonesia. But further than that, we’re trawling house sitting sites for accommodation in France.
So far we’ve come up with nothing. The demand far outweighs supply. The other problem is that we haven’t house sat before. Without references from owners of homes we’ve looked after, it’s very difficult to gain the trust of prospective home owners.
We won’t be undone, of course. House sitting is by the far the most financially viable option, but there are other avenues we could take. And if all else fails we could simply rent somewhere.
We’d actually consider 6 months in Spain first, and then 6 in France after that if something came up. Italy and Germany will have to wait because my language skills are ridiculously low to non-existent in both of those languages.
As amazing as Asia has been, we’re seriously craving western comforts, and the idea of creating HDR photos of Europe is something that really drives me.
We’re trying not get ahead of ourselves. The next 2 weeks in Yogya and 6 weeks on the road are going to be amazing. Indonesia has amazing variety, and Indonesians are always keen to help you and give you advice on where to visit. The list of beautiful places to see gets longer and longer.
