We are a Spanish-English couple in our mid-30s who live in Bristol, UK. That is, except for this year which we've dedicated to spending getting to know South America. We love to travel and have already been through various places on the continent, meeting plenty of local people, getting involved in interesting projects, seeing some INCREDIBLE scenery and wildlife, and, above all, learning lots of great new things.
We are at a point in our trip when we're keen to take on a house-sitting opportunity or two in our final few months away, to slow things down, get to know an area well by staying put for a bit, have time to work on some of our own projects, and a chance to cook our own dinners for a while!
A little bit about us: Cassy has studied Social Anthropology, Permaculture and English Teaching. She has years of experience as a fundraiser and project manager for an international NGO in London, as well as in catering and event organization. In recent years she has launched her own catering business in Bristol, trading at fetivals, markets and private events. She is very interested in sustainable development and social justice, as well as travel, cooking, drawing and gardening.
Paco has studied Occupational Therapy and Music Therapy. Since 2003 he has worked full time in Mental Health, Disability and Rehabilitation in Spain, France and England. He is passionate about music, and is a multi-instrumentalist and composer with several albums published. He is interested in social justice and cultural integration, and spends time enjoying cooking and graphic design.
We're friendly and sociable, but also love to spend time in quiet places, very content with pottering on with our own artistic projects and enjoying the surrounding nature. We are house proud home-owners ourselves, super practical, pro-active and capable to put our hands to anything when it comes to house maintainance. And of course, we love animals, and absolutely promise to shower yours in plenty of love and attention whilst you're away!
We are open to different proposals, so please do not hesitate to contact us and we hope to meet you soon.
Thank you very much for considering us,
Cassy and Paco.
