I am currently living in Australia and will begin my travels later this year. I have been a teacher all my life and am now working as a literacy specialist on-line.
I grew up on a wheat and sheep farm in Western Australia surrounded by natural bushland and a variety of wild and domesticated animals. I have travelled the world working in a number of different areas: as a live-in companion and carer in London; as a waitress in a ski lodge in Scotland; as a business owner in Australia; and as a teacher in Western Australia, London and Singapore. I have travelled extensively throughout Asia, Europe and Australia. I raised a family of three children in the beach side town of Esperance in WA.
I have owned, rented, house sat and maintained a number of properties, all wtih large gardens, outdoor areas and pools. I have been a pet owner or carer with experience in looking after dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens and guinea pigs.
With my family now living independently, I have time to continue exploring the world. I have been extremely lucky to have lived in a number of lovely homes of my own and now I would like to be of service to other home owners. I would also like to volunteer my time by teaching English if the chance arises.
I am a slow traveller, staying in one place for as long as I can, getting to know the community, its customs and the local food. The opportunity to stay in a comfortable environment, with the company of a pet or two, a garden to potter in plus all the comforts of home truly adds up to the perfect experience for me. I get pleasure from cooking, taking care of animals, gardening, tidying and keeping my living space organised and welcoming. I enjoy being outdoors and exploring a new neighbourhood on foot or by local transport.
My life experience has helped me develop the many skills that are essential when taking care of a home and its animals. As a teacher, a business owner, a home and pet owner and a world traveller I have developed tolerance towards others, am very organised, pay attention to detail and am adaptable in any situation.
I am looking for short or long term house sits anywhere in the world. High speed unlimited wifi is needed to support my work teaching online. I have a number of references available.
