As a past home exchanger and avid traveler, cat mother, and responsible homeowner, I believe I have what it takes to house sit. Being security minded and detail oriented, I take well to new surroundings. I have great navigation skills. For the past thirteen years, I have lived in my own rehabbed historic house in an urban neighborhood in transition. This valuable life experience has taught me much about personal and property safety and security and property maintenance. Best of all, my retirement affords me total flexibility. I look forward to traveling in a way that allows me to experience places as a resident does. Ideally, I am open to a placement almost anywhere for a duration of one to four weeks. I am studying Spanish and would like an opportunity to practice and learn more, so placement in a Spanish speaking country or community would be a plus. I have a clean New York State driver's license and my US passport is current.
