Official Website of 'A Never Ending Holiday'
HOUSE SITTING AROUND THE WORLD
Paradise is not a place, it is what we make of it
An unforeseen circumstance triggers a 180° turn in the lives of Jana and her life partner Joe. What started as a travel method on a small budget turned into a passion and the realisation that house-sitting could be a never ending holiday.
An inspiring adventure as they part with their belongings and leave behind their comfortable lives, including jobs, home, friends and family, in exchange for the unknown.
Jana openly gives first-hand insights into the reality of their unconventional lifestyle as long-term house-sitters. Immersing themselves in foreign countries, trying out different lifestyles, including house and pets, is fascinating and leaves one wanting more.
A moving story about the kindness of strangers, the search for freedom and the courage to follow one's dreams.
“If you've ever played with the idea of travelling open end, simplifying your life and escaping the day-to-day – or simply experiencing all this from the comfort of your sofa – then this is your book!“

TRAVEL DESTINATIONS - YEAR 1
I hope that you will enjoy my book and that it will inspire you to look beyond horizons, and to reach for your own stars right away.
Our story, of a young couple without any extraordinary privileges, demonstrates what can be possible if we just let go. It should encourage you to unearth and realise your long-desired wishes. If you close a door, you will soon realise another has already been opened, just waiting for you to step through!
It is okay to have bad days and to question yourself, and that in the end it all comes down to being able to say: I was true to myself, I tried everything I longed for, and lived my passions – big and small. There is no failure, only trial.
I share the joy, freedom and hiccups we experienced during our travels, along with our gratitude for new found four and two-legged friends, beautiful homes and faraway places. The inevitable finding of one's self, and ways towards loving acceptance of one's own weaknesses can be read between the lines.
A great read for anyone wanting to know the reality of diving into this kind of travel lifestyle, from the day-to-day to the big adventures.

This book makes you fantasize about a life we all dream of and are too scared to live. It’s a deep dive into unknown adventures that pay off more than one can imagine. Well written and highly recommend reading.
Just skimmed it, I love it already. Can't wait to dig in. Good writing style pulls you into the book immediately, mental cinema is on - chapeau!
The deed distinguishes the goal from the dream. I believe this is the reason why I share with you in the book the 'tools' which made my path possible. Maybe one or the other recommendation will help you to turn your dreams into reality.
