I have recently discovered that there is a whole new way to take a trip – especially if you want to go to an expat community in another country, and that way is by condo sitting, but generally, the idea is that someone needs a woman to stay in their condo while they travel for a whileâ€¦ Usually, they want someone to take care of the pets, water the plants, pay the yard woman and housekeeper, and just be there in case something happens. House resting as a way to take a trip is good unless there is no heating and cooling, then very often, the people that own these houses either do not have a/c, or they ask you not to use it. Granted, in these smaller countries where only the wealthy even have heating and cooling, electricity is fancy. That’s why the owners ask the condo sitters not to use the cooling system or the heater, but well, I am just not a fan of thatâ€¦ I say if you can’t afford for your condo sitter to use the cooling system, then you shouldn’t be getting a condo sitter. I mean, c’mon, if you can afford to pay the housekeeper and pool woman when you are not even there, then you should not expect your condo sitter to live without the air conditioner when it is nearing triple digits on the thermostat reading outside. If you decide to sign up on 1 of those condo resting websites, be sure to ask the homeowners before you buy your flight. If you don’t want to be there without having access to good heating and cooling, then be sure to ask before you take on the challenge.
