Two artists on a little adventure house sitting their way around the world.


Legend has it these two people spent years working behind the scenes for movies until one day they realized their own vision of seeing the world was taking a back seat, so they got on a plane and traveled across the great pond to house sit Ireland.

For weeks they lived in a cottage just a stones throw from the Atlantic, watching ducks, chickens, and a little dog, James. The Irish landscape begged them to take many, many photos each day. It even showed off a bit with rainbows appearing in the sky day after day, thirty-three in all. 

Once the home owners returned, The Globe Squatters were off again moving through some of the greatest cities in the world. Even though the days would go by with little idea of their next destination, it was proving to be a great adventure. And so they created this site to share, not only how they do it, but the visual experience, real life situations and amazing adventures along the way, all what they call Slices of Life.

Now you can read keep up with their adventures on the Blog, purchase unique items from their store and subscribe to their monthly newsletter for latest info & projects, all right here. The Globe Squatters also offer all kinds of services or if you are looking to have them house sit for you please contact us.

“Ojo” at Bricolage in Pittsburgh

Let’s just be honest, if you don’t know Bricolage then you don’t know “da Burgh”.
