Travel Tips for Women: Travel Like a Local While Housesitting (Video)

By Margaret Manning September 07, 2013 Travel

Teresa Roberts is an international house sitter who travels the world looking after homes in exotic places. She is a fascinating woman, a seasoned globetrotter and author of “Finding the Gypsy in Me” and “Creative Paths to Freedom”. 

We talk about how she left the safety of her teaching career and created a minimalist lifestyle that allowed her to follow her passion for adventure and how she refused to let age be a barrier to her love for travel and freedom. Enjoy the show!

Next, we discuss her strategy for simple living and how she minimizes her spending while traveling. She explains how she shops locally, befriends her neighbors and follows the principles of being an “un-tourist”.
