Woman ends her 23 year marriage to hang out with pets around the world



    A woman has revealed how, after her 23-year marriage ended, she quit her job and sold her £250,000 house to travel the world by staying in strangers’ homes.

    Former graphic designer Angela Croft, 49, got rid of all of her possessions following her divorce in May 2016 to embark upon a global adventure, so far touring England, New Zealand and Australia.

    Planning to keep travelling for as long as possible, Angela, from Birmingham, West Midlands, said:

    ‘The divorce was a difficult time, after 23 years together. ‘In the wake of all that, I wanted to do something meaningful with my life. I looked into travelling and volunteering. ‘As soon as I read about house-sitting, a lightbulb went off. I signed up within the hour.’

    Splitting up from her ex-husband, who she does not wish to name, Angela’s life felt stagnant, so she decided to take action.

    Currently, she’s staying at a property in Wanaka, a lakeside resort on the South Island surrounded by snow-capped mountains.

    ‘I’m managing an Air B&B for my friend at the moment just to build back up my money,’ she explained. ‘So far, I’ve just been relying on my savings to get by. I got half from the house sale, split between my ex husband and I.’

    Angela has organised lots of other back-to-back stays, and will be exploring the rest of New Zealand until September, going back to the North Island where she’ll be reuinited with Maisie. Then, she has no idea where she will visit next – but is adamant it will need to be by the sea.
