You have a need and I can fill in that gap. I am Swiss of German mother toungue but fluent in English and French too. After my early retiring by end of June 2012 I am available and I am flexible. I did serve for over forty years to Swiss postal service in different mainly logistic fields. I made experiences as house sitter for dogs and cats in various occasions in Italy, Spain, Costa Rica, India and Singapore and it did work all to the contentment of both parties - for that I am ready for new challenges or tasks. I have no problems to stay out in the nature (remote area) for a longer time but also city life is ok - I am curious for the world and I think a stay of several weeks can satisfy that curiosity. I can do pet care if needed but also simple works for environment like cutting grass or sweeping snow in winter I am used to do. I am a non-smoker. If the place to sit is rather far from my home base in Switzerland, I think it is useful to travel just from 3 weeks up. Due to duties in Switzerland I can not leave for longer than 6-8 weeks at once.
