I'm a fit and active semi-retired freelance translator and I live in France. I hold a dual French-German citizenship, have lived in four countries (Germany, USA, France, Spain) and speak the respective languages. I love to travel, meet people and experience new things.
My husband and I own the house we live in, therefore I perfectly understand what home owners expect from a house sitter. I'm a reliable and trustworthy person with a clear criminal record willing to fulfill the agreed-upon tasks in exchange for a place to stay and the opportunity to visit a foreign country. I believe that house sitting is a win-win for both the traveler and the homeowner. Oh, and by the way: I don't smoke, consume alcohol or any type of drugs, and I don't go out much at night.
Experience as a house sitter: I house sat for family, friends and fellow church members on a number of occasions when I was young. Their pets were primarily dogs, cats and birds. I started house sitting again after my son moved to Ireland a couple of years ago.
Experience with animals: I grew up around domestic and farm animals and I currently have four rescue dogs. I also worked as a volunteer at a Spanish animal shelter for a couple of years.
I am open to ALL proposals, however, please note that I prefer longer house-sits (3+ weeks).
