I have recently retired from teaching (all levels at one time or another) and now have the time to do what I have dreamed of doing for years. I like the idea of having a "home" base and a sense of belonging when visiting another area. While housesitting I could get a feel for the area (country) so that I could travel once the housesitting assignment is completed.
I live in Boulder, CO. I have had a dog who lived to be 14. I feel confident that I am a caring and responsible pet carer. I care for a wonderful flower garden, a cabin in the mountains, and a rental property. I am VERY responsible, energetic, and respectful of others' property and possessions. I would care for your pets and home as I would my own. I would be coming alone. You could have absolute confidence in leaving your home and precious pet(s) in my care.
I have housesat on numerous occasions. I have travelled in many countries. I feel happily at home in Latin countries because I speak Spanish and love the culture. I have a list of references which I would send immediately so you could assure yourself of my reliability.
