HELLO! choices choices choices... For the winter of I am looking for pet/housesits in Portugal, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, since I am hope to visit my friends and cousin in between different housesits over a three month persiod.
I have dual citizenship and dual healthinsurance etc. I am planning to drive down from the Netherlands where I have my small gardenhouse right outside of Haarlem.
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 and or Summers when I live in my tiny home in the Netherlands (the Holland part of it). I adore pets, but because I'm gone a lot I sadly can't have my own any more. Carefull and respectful with people, houses and things, because that's how my generation was still raised and I am principally like that. As an educator I have worked with College students teaching languages (and Methodology of L2 Teaching) in the States; and in Europe Teaching the MS Office products plus business English privately and to companies. 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 celebrate the geese flying over each morning and night, besides the "undocumented" felines wandering about this large garden complex. I so love gardening and bring people together in my Dutch garden. I love walking with dogs, in rain, wind and weather. Cats snuggle up when reading a book. Choral singing, esp Renaissance, has been my breath and I structurally listen to classical radio stations, but oh boy, blue grass, and Jazz delight me as well.
I am vegetarian, dont smoke, nor drink, except for pots of tea, and waterkefir.
I'd love to housesite for you, with or without pets or veggie/flower gardens.
