My husband and I lived 30 years in Portland, Oregon, raising our kids and enjoying life. Now we're traveling (very slowly) and enjoying a nomadic lifestyle, mostly in Southeast Asia. Currently we are learning Thai and enjoying the extra dimension this brings to getting to know Thailand and, to some degree, Laos.
We love cats and dogs and gardens, so we're happy to take good care of other people's homes from time to time. We're handy with small repairs, too.
We return to Portland twice a year to take care of personal matters and visit family. We like to housesit so we can have some space to ourselves, and our family can, too. We seek house-and-pet-sitting engagements of anywhere from a week to three weeks. Longer is also possible, especially in the late summer and fall of 2020, when we'll want to stay in Portland for a couple of months.
If you'd like to get to know us better, you can take a look at my blog, s://rambulatory I post irregularly but it will give you some idea of where we've been traveling and what we do with our time. Likewise my account, which I do update much more regularly: s:// /aliza.earnshaw
