Travel Recipes - Exchange Your Home & Save on Travel

Did You Know …..
You can have deluxe accommodations while you travel with no cost to you. You want to spend a few months or more somewhere exotic, beautiful, and culturally different, but you don't think you can handle the cost.

What if you could arrange it free? The answer is a home exchange. Exchange your home for a comparable residence in a foreign country. It's free, except for the minimal cost of finding someone who wants to trade.

William G. Thomas and his wife exchanged their home in California for a 500-year-old rectory in
English farm country, a small, austere, Gothic church situated on a knolled horizon. It stood
alongside a moss-covered cemetery and was surrounded by ancient, thick-trunked trees and
ringed by six handsome and rustic English houses.

This tiny English community about 40 miles north of London has a population of 17. The residents are hard-working farmers and the families of three business executives who chose country life
over the rigors of urban living. One of these executives, John Morris, and his wife Mary decided
they wanted to venture for a while beyond their English village. They wanted to see the United

So the two couples arranged a home exchange. The three-week swap was total. The Thomas' and the Morris' exchanged homes, pets, and cars. William and his wife had visited London on several occasions before investigating the idea of a home exchange. They wanted to return to the
London area, but not simply as tourists running hurriedly from site to site. So they wrote to
English friends, applied for home-exchange brochures, and reviewed ads in the London Times.

Their inquiries yielded several alternatives: a house at Wimbledon; an apartment near Kensington
Gardens; and a bedroom in the home of a friend in Whitchurch, Hants. Then the letter came asking if they would be interested in a home exchange with a family living in an old rectory near the ancient town of Hitchin. They jumped at the chance.

The swap was arranged over the telephone. The couples discussed departure times, instructions on how to operate household appliances, trash collection, and what to feed each other's pets. It
took several months to make all of the arrangements.

How to arrange a swap You can begin your search for a home exchange partner by asking around or by placing an advertisement in an international publication, such as International Living, 824 E. Baltimore St., Baltimore, MD 21202, or the International Herald Tribune, 850 Third Ave., 10th Floor, New York, NY 10022; (212) 752-3890.

The alternative is to contact a home exchange organization. These companies publish directories
several times a year listing people interested in trading homes, when they want to travel, and where they would like to go.

Then see pictures of a nice home where you could stay for free for a few weeks or even more.
You can! This travel recipes opportunity is called house sitting. It's easy to get started Just

You are then allowed to place an ad in their directory for your services as a house sitter and also contact home owners for any house sitting positions currently listed in the directory. House sitting positions range from a few weeks to several months. So you can apply for the position that best fits your needs. The following article will give you a glimpse into the life of a house sitter.


House Sitters Love Their Life
Copyright © 2005, Ian White

There does not seem to be a lack of home owners who seek out the services of a house sitter. Our modern age has drastically changed the lifestyle of many. With business travel, military assignments and even some families owning more than one home, house sitters never have to fear being without a place to lay their head at night. There are house sitters who never call one
place home, while others only seek short house sitting assignments a few times per year. Whatever their lifestyles, house sitters usually find a home owner who can meet their needs.

Retirees are particularly fond of house sitting. Many of them make radical changes in their lifestyles when they realize they are not obligated to stay in one area. Retirees have been known
to pack up a suitcase and catch the next plane to Mexico, Australia, or wherever the home owner sounds the call from. Many seniors find the change of environment invigorating after years of the monotonous drudgery of employment. Other seniors prefer to take only a few short assignments each year. This gives them the opportunity to visit new areas while still maintaining their home base.

Freelance photographers and writers are also finding the house sitting lifestyle beneficial. Writers who are creating the next best selling novel--or doing research on a particular part of the world--can house sit for a home owner in that area and experience first hand the life, culture and history of a given spot. The same is true for photographers. Many photographs travel and are in need of a place to stay. When they are matched with a home owner who needs a sitter, the photographer can tell the hotel room good-bye.

Families are also realizing that house sitting gives them a chance to vacation in parts of the world which would be out of the question for them otherwise. There are many home owners who welcome families. Home owners who also need the sitter to care for pets can be assured their pets will get adequate attention and exercise when children are in the equation.

There are some house sitters who are unsure about where they want to put down their roots. Recent military people who have lived in various bases for years may want to house sit in different parts of the world for a while before they decide which area would suit them for a permanent residence.

Students are also house sitters. By being a house sitter, this cuts down on their living expenses. This also assures the student of a quiet place to concentrate on studies--away from the distraction of a college campus.

Most house sitters register with a house sitter directory. For a small fee, their information is available to home owners who are in need of a house sitter. Here house sitters can post their
information, such as which areas they are available to house sit in, the length of assignments they are available for, what skills they have which can benefit the home owner, and so on.

Besides having the opportunity to see the world, house sitters benefit because they are not charged rent. In exchange for room and board, the house sitter maintains the home owner’s property and does regular duties for the home owner while they are away. These duties can include lawn maintenance, cleaning a pool, taking care of pets, and more. The needs of the
owner will be clearly outlined in a house sitting contract.

Being free from rent or a mortgage payment is allowing many house sitters the chance to save their money. Some house sitters have big goals and house sitting gives them the opportunity to achieve them. Whether its starting a small business, saving for a down payment on a home, or paying their way through college, houses sitting is paying off for the sitter.

House sitters are mature and responsible. They know the home owner is leaving their possessions and mementos in their capable hands. If a problem arises, house sitters are quick to rise to the challenge. If a pipe leaks, or a tree falls in the yard because of a storm, a house sitter is on the job and willing to take the necessary steps to fix the problem. House sitters are also aware that while they may be living in someone’s home, it is not their property. House sitter guidelines usually do not allow for parties or over night guests.

Many house sitters are invited for repeat stays. When a home to come back when the need arises for them to travel, again. Many home owners and sitters are finding they are forging friendships with each other and they keep up with each others life away from the house sitting arrangement.

Occasionally house sitters will be asked to do more than just maintain the property of the home owner or care for the pets. For instance, some home owners may own rental properties in the
area and ask for the sitter to be on hand for rent payments. Other home owners may live on a farm. House sitters have been known to feed the chickens or horses. Most house sitters love the diversity of these tasks, and welcome the experience. Each home owner is different and house sitters love exploring all aspects of a new assignment.

If you are interested in becoming a house sitter, you can register with a house sitter directory. You don’t have to be a year-round or full time house sitter, either. There are many home
owners who are constantly seeking sitters for short stays, such as a week or two. These home owners may simply want to go on a vacation themselves and need someone to watch over their things.

If you would like the chance to see the world for a few weeks--or for months on end--you should seriously consider house sitting. It is a win-win situation for everyone involved.

Travel Recipes - Air Courier

Did You Know …..

…..  that you can fly anywhere in the world you like, at huge discounts on normal fares, sometimes FREE of Charge, simply by working as a courier for one of hundreds of companies needing people to accompany their packages abroad? 

Go to New York, Australia, Hong Kong, Hawaii and more.  Did you know that international corporations will pay for you to fly to Zurich...or Paris...or Rome? All you have to do in return is agree to carry time-sensitive business cargo (it could be files or computer discs, for example) to your destination. You may never have to touch, let alone actually carry, the bags. Representatives of the firm that has hired you will take care of all the dirty work. All you have to do is check the cargo as your luggage.

Go anywhere you like, in fact. Courier companies worldwide are desperate for people like you to help them maintain their reputation for speedy, reliable delivery of products and packages to all corners of the world. Traveling as an air courier is perfectly legal. Thousands of travelers do it every year. As an air courier, you fly like any other passenger on the plane, enjoying the same comforts and amenities. There are only two differences. First, you don't have any checked luggage (just your carry-on bags). And second, you don't pay full fare for your ticket. In fact, you may not pay anything at all. But more than that, there is something exciting, even romantic about traveling as an air courier. You can be called up for duty with little more than a day or two notice -- like a foreign correspondent or an international spy. What an adventure, to receive a telephone call asking if you can leave for the Far East in 24 hours...or if you're interested in flying to London in the morning.

Whatever your age, whatever your status, no matter where you live, there's every chance for you to travel abroad free of charge (or at uniquely low cost) several times a year, or even spend the majority of your time traveling to exciting locations, and even earn a living as you go!  Of course, it can be much less spontaneous, if you prefer. Some courier services allow you to make reservations weeks or months in advance.

How come you haven't heard of this fantastic opportunity before?  Could it be because the opportunity is so good, so easily available, that until now the existence of free air courier travel has been a closely guarded secret known only to a handful of lucky travelers?  Or perhaps you've thought it was just too good to be true  …..  so  ….. it must be a scam!  Not so, it's very much above board and now the secret is open to you.

So exactly how do you reach out for your share of free and next-to-nothing travel to anywhere you'd like to go?  What can you do when you get there  …..  and how can you generate some useful spending money or even make a full-time living from your travels? 

Making the connection You want to fly to Sydney, Australia, and then take off for a grand adventure Down Under...exploring Queensland's rain forest...sailing the Great Barrier
Reef...maybe traveling northwest from Sydney to Mudgee, a little, undiscovered town cradled in the Cudgegong Valley on the western side of the Great Dividing Range, where you can visit stud and sheep ranches, go prospecting for gold, and marvel at Frog Rock (a huge sedimentary amphibian that crouches beside the road)..

But the cheapest round-trip ticket to Sydney you've been able to find costs US$1,500 -- considerably more than your pocketbook can afford. Don't give up on your trip. Pick up the phone and call a courier service. Explain where you want to travel and when and ask if the service has any packages going to that destination at that time. Most services require that you call not more than 60 days in advance of your trip.

If it is your first time looking for work as a courier, it might be better to make the initial contact by letter rather than telephone. Tell the service a little about yourself, include a resume, and assure them that you are flexible, available, eager to travel, and accustomed to packing light (remember, you'll only be allowed your carry-on luggage). Then follow up on this letter with a phone call, requesting a specific assignment.

But before you accept an assignment, verify the terms of the arrangement. Some services no longer offer free tickets to their couriers; some offer only deeply discounted tickets. In fact, as the occupation becomes more popular, it is becoming harder and harder for couriers to travel free.

Years ago, courier services not only provided couriers with free airfare to their destination, but they paid them a fee as well. Today, this is unheard of. It is still possible to get free airfare, though,
but you may have to shop around. And you probably will have to settle for a last-minute booking. Even if you can't get your ticket for free, you will be able to get it for about 70% less than you could buy it anywhere else.

Another thing to keep in mind is that you can bargain for a fare. If you're interested in flying in
two months to Buenos Aires, you may not be able to find a free ticket. (Remember, free tickets are usually associated with last-minute bookings.) But neither do you have to settle for the first fare quoted you. Haggle. Bide your time. The closer it gets to the date of departure, the more eager the courier service will be to make a deal.

The only red tape involved is an application form that the courier service will ask you to fill out. Some services also charge minimal annual registration fees. For your part, the work involved is minimal. Always check in the day before you are scheduled to depart to make sure the time or the flight or the carrier has not been changed. This is not a formality; it is a safeguard. It is not unusual. In fact, it is common for courier flights and times to be changed at the last minute.

Finding a service To find a courier service, you could simply open your local yellow pages, look under "Air Courier Services," and then call each firm listed to see if they use free-lance couriers and if they provide free tickets or only discounted tickets. But you'll probably be disappointed. The services that advertise in the yellow pages rarely use free-lance couriers and never give free tickets.

A better way to start is to contact Now Voyager, 74 Varick St., Room 307, New York, NY 10013; (212)431- 1616, a large courier service that deals with a lot of different freight companies and uses a lot of free- lance couriers. Call between 6 p.m. and 11:30 a.m. to hear a tape recording detailing all available flights and prices; call in the afternoon to book flights.

Other courier services that use free-lance couriers and that sometimes offer free tickets to their
couriers include:
