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.

Recipes - House Sitting Opens New Doors
What if you
could look through an online directory and choose a
location you wanted to visit.
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
browse through the house sitting positions in an online
directory until you find an area where you would like to
visit. Next, register as a house sitter. Moreover there
is usually a small yearly fee to be listed in an
organization's house sitting directory. 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
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
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
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
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

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
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.
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
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
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
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
