I am a middle aged Italian house and pet sitter looking for local experiences with your pets to keep me company.

My kids have now flown the nest - my daughter is in her third year of biomedicine at UCL, London and my son is completing the last year of the IB diploma as a boarder in England - and unfortunately I no longer have pets of my own. I would then like to discover a bit more the world possibly not as the usual tourist that visits several different places in a quite short period of time but more like an open-minded person willing to take care of others' homes and pets while experiencing life in a new place as locals do. I would then like to write my insights on every single experience and share them to whoever may be interested.

I had several pets in my life. I started out with a bunch of German Shepherds, Birds and Cats as a kid and I continued as an adult with a Labrador and a Golden Retriever - this last one rescued in Shanghai -and with one of their pups I kept from the first litter, plus a Rabbit, a Hamster, 4 Hens, a Goose, a Duck and a couple of Turtles I naively bought to keep company to my Chinese Carps and other Fish unaware of the fact that they were on a strict fish diet...

I miss having pets, but having set my mind on spending a good portion of my time in new places from my base in Paris it is better to temporarily give up on the pleasure and privilege of a cute, loyal and not so demanding friend to cuddle.

I grew up in Italy where I worked as a marketing planner in the ENI group, then I left my job to follow my ex husband in East Asia (China and Vietnam) where I spent several years. 

Currently I am working remotely from home. 
I am fluent in English, French and of course Italian; I can get by with Spanish and Mandarin too. 

I never smoked and most likely I never will. I do not drink. I am a very neat person. I fancy cleaninless and tidiness. 

I love kids pets flowers plants music cinema art design our planate and life. I have plenty of interests and I read a lot. I have a healthy lifestyle, I keep myself in shape by walking, trekking, swimming and skiing and I favor organic and locally harvested foodstuffs as much as possible. I try to limit my contribution to pollution to as little as I can since I believe we need to take netter care of our earth. 

I will be very glad of helping you out with your home and beloved part of family that cannot follow you on your trips and I am looking forward to get in touch with you.
