The end of each housesit is always bittersweet. While we're excited to welcome back the homeowners and be privy to details of their vacation, we're also sad because it's time to take our leave. Not only have we grown quite fond of their pets during our stay, but we've also gained an appreciation and insight into the place they call home - something that's quite rare while simply travelling as a tourist.
