Liz and Brian are still in Italy, but this week they decide to stop being so boring and predictable and instead go out and explore. Like proper tourists. This is obviously the best thing to do when you’re spending six weeks in Italy.

Or is it??

In this week’s show find out all about:

Was San Gimignano worth the two-hour drive?

Feeling a bit ripped off

Americans abroad vs Brits abroad

Why this restaurant in a housing estate almost made Liz cry…

We LOVE Housesitting. Want to Try it too? 

If you have been following this podcast for a while, then you will know that we have just returned for six months in Europe and Asia. While we were there, we did a lot of housesitting. We are constantly asked how we did this and if we can share the website that we used. So here it is:

The initial ‘looking part’ is free. You can oggle all of the beautiful houses in Italy that are waiting for YOU to look after them. Take a sneak peek here! (As I say, looking is completely free, so gander to your heart’s content).

Then, if you are serious about using Housesitting as a tool to travel the world for free (as we do), you can use my exclusive discount code to save yourself 20% by Clicking here.

Still not sure about paying for a Housesitting membership? Remember that the cost of a yearly membership (approx $80 using the discount code above) will be paid back (and more) on the first housesitting night. It really is that simple!
