Hi, choices choices choices...
I've lived in various countries, housesat years ago -as a couple- in Europe, from Greece to Scotland. Picking up the housesitting thread again while in the usa during the wintertimes. Summers I return to the Netherlands (the Holland part of it). So mostly I am looking for winter housesits in the states. I adore pets, but because I'm gone a lot I can't have my own any more. Carefull and respectful with people, houses and stuff. As an educator I have worked with College students teaching languages (and Methodology of L2 Teaching) in the States; and in Europe Teaching the Office products privately and to companies, having set up a training center for Allen & Overy in Amsterdam office. I have volunteered in archives (still do, also long distance) and with refugees. In the wintertime I feed the birds and in the summertime I love gardening bring people together in my Dutch garden. I love walking with dogs, in rain, wind and weather. Cats snuggle up when watching a film or reading a book.
I'd love to housesite for you, with or without pets or veggie/flower gardens.
