Five months ago we picked up the little red car from England and drove it around Europe and the UK. And it was bliss. Pure heaven. Brian and I had the time of our lives. Just like Baby and Johnny black vest on the wet log.

But I won’t lie. It’s been a bit stressful. The car thing I mean.

As you might know, this little hatchback wasn’t cheap (nineteen thousand pounds to be exact). She’s a classic, you see. A little red vintage Peugeot 205 GTi that Bri bought for my birthday (let’s not mention the fact that I’ve never even sat behind the effing steering wheel) and those things fetch big bucks. So every time we drove down a bumpy lane, and something went clunk or click or tick or tock, my initial thought was “Oh sh*t. There goes another grand”.

I’m positive like that. I like to look on the bright side.

But I don’t have to worry about that. Not anymore. Because as of yesterday…




In this week’s show, Liz and Bri share what happened to the little red car (and whether they feel flush or broke). They also talk about Brian’s dirty little secret, their next move to Thailand, the heartache of saying goodbye to loved ones and why when although they may trick people into thinking they things together, they constantly feel like a couple of old incontinent biddies with brains like goldfish.

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 around the world 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!
