    We’re just a couple of ladies and an Old English Sheepdog traveling around the United States. We both have been living in Germany and Italy for the past 13 years, and we finally decided to return to the States to see what living here again might be like. We both taught in the public schools of New York (Brooklyn, Harlem and the Bronx). After teaching in the system for a number of years, we moved to Europe. But now we might be moving back to be closer to family. Maria is a musician, Ames is an artist and designer, and Winston… Winston is a gourmand.

    We are out to make new friends and learn from one another, share skills, simplify our lives, create a more sustainable and resilient way of life for ourselves, find community and cultivate a closer relationship with the food we eat by growing it ourselves whenever possible. We enjoy house sitting, pet sitting and helping folks with various community projects. We also enjoy helping people learn English, as we are in the process of learning Italian.

    Winston (dog):
    Winston is a 12-year-old Old English Sheepdog that is accompanying us on our adventures throughout Europe. He's extremely relaxed (a bit lazy), great with children and adults of all ages, very friendly and social. He gets along very well with other dogs. Because he is deaf, he is really quiet and laid-back. We *love* animals and are more than happy to help you take care of your four-legged family members. We are both totally committed to the well-being of animals and animal rights and would shower any animal we meet with attention and love.
