We are a semi-retired couple in our 50's who love travel and pets. Our children have now left home and we are pretty much free to travel as we want.
Historically we have had several cats over the years, but given the time we spend away including sailing we have no pets ourselves at the moment. Annie's family have two cocker spaniels that we look after for periods or a week or so though we have not owned one ourselves.
We are very self reliant, and have spent much time indepedently travelling, sailing with our family. We have quite extensive practical skills including gardening, electricals and general maintenance / DIY issues.
We have house exchanged through Homelink for holidays since 2001 so are well used to living in and respecting other people's homes. We housesat for 2 weeks in Wisconsin, USA in October 2019 and can provide a reference if desired.
We look forward to helping you with your needs in exchange for exploring your local area.
