Sarah, beautiful pictures on your site! Unfortunately I coupldn't see the ones of Nepal. I went to the menu with all the different places you have albums of and clicked on Nepal, but it produced an album of Monument Valley, as far as I could make out. I enjoyed those too, but was hoping to see some beautiful shorts of Nepal.

NEW HOUSE-SITTING SOCIAL NETWORK
Making travel more affordable
I'd like to alert you all to you to a recent newcomer to the web HouseSitMatch which provides an online environment for house-sitters and homeowners to meet and exchange information. House-sitters can find free accommodation for their travels and homeowners can leave their home, pets and garden in capable hands while they travel. Reciprocal house-sits can be organised which is effectively house-swapping.
The site currently specialises in the UK and Australia and is brand new so we are in the throes of building sitter and property databases. In view of that Value Match is currently FREE so we encourage people to get in on the ground level of this new house-sitting social network!
Reading the site's blog is a great way to be introduced to the concept.
