About this sitter

I am a retired IT professional now living in Greenwich, London. I have my own cat now (with a house-sharer looking after it when I am away). I have lived abroad much of my life (Indonesia, Philippines, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands, Australia), and have travelled in many other countries. I speak enough French for day-to-day needs, and more basic Dutch, German and Indonesian.
I am interested in house sitting for a few days (probably only in the UK or nearby Europe) up to a few weeks. I prefer places in or close to cities/towns/villages rather than isolated places.
I am on Skype, Whatsapp, etc. I have a car.

Why they want to house sit

Addicted to travel. Less addicted to hotels.

Their experience

I have done several house & pet sits in through MindMyHouse:
- Twice in New York (a cat) for the same owner
- Twice in SW France (a cat & dog) for the same owner
- Twice in Ireland (dog, chickens)
- Once in Paris (cat).
- Once in Oxfordshire, UK (2 cats)
- Once in Denmark (cat)
I have also looked after friends' house and/or pets.
In my younger days... long ago... I stayed during holidays on a mixed farm, helping with cattle, sheep, horses, poultry, etc.
