My husband and are on sabbatical this year, traveling. We spent the summer doing some house sitting in the US. We sat for 3 different families and loved this experience, taking care of chickens, gardens, dogs and cats. Our home owners were very pleased. This fall we traveled to Greece (not house sitting) and we missed the warmth and coziness of being in a home and caring for it. We are traveling outside the EU from January to June, and we are looking for a good match. We spend our time doing research and writing, are super clean (a little obsessive in this regard really) and responsible. We love both cats and dogs.
