A couple have finally realised their dream of getting on the property ladder — after they swapped paying extortionate rent prices for travelling the world pet sitting to save money.

Charlie Green, 37, and her husband, Daniel, 38, were dedicated city workers but dreamed of a very different life, travelling the world, after meeting at University back in 2003.

Although they both had well-paying jobs, forking out almost £15,000 a year in rent meant they were never able to get the deposit they needed for a home — and definitely couldn’t afford to travel the world as they planned.

Daniel, who now has his own drone buisness, said: ‘It was bliss to be in one place for more than a few nights which was definitely needed to rest our minds, bodies and souls after our hectic itinerary in India and Nepal.

‘The pets needed various forms of special treatment and love in terms of their diet and medicine which kept us close to them but given we’d travelled so far around the world we were quite happy with this arrangement.

‘We were desperate to go to the next level of owning our own house and wanted more from life.I even sold my car.

‘It meant we were ultimately able to buy our dream home.’
