unterwegs auf Reisen
I am a cheerful seasoned traveler seeking opportunities to help you out. I am looking forward to meeting people around the world and learning more about their countries. I am retired now, but have run guest lodges here in Oregon. I have helped in the office of a non-profit in Greece and London. Plus I have been on the staff at an Eco retreat center in Hawaii. I volunteer here in Oregon with the Portland Art Museum and Oregon Zoo helping with fund raisers, events, and guest services. Plus overseas. Also in Costa Rica where I helped with a sea turtle project. I wrote and taught a travel class at a local college. I honed my cooking skills at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and at the famous Otis Cafe along the Oregon coast. I have a lot of different skills and experiences I would love to share. I am fun loving, enthusiastic, and love to laugh. I am interested in helping out with services in your hotel, hostel, or home. I can help welcome guests, reception, cooking. Site development and events are a specialty. Helping in all ways with tourists. I love organizing, gardening, helping with painting. Bragging rights...I have been a personal chef at a chateau in France. And in Rome. Additionally I have owned a retail photography store. I am very reliable and fit into any situation. I love coming up with exciting new ways to do things, plus can follow plans you already have in place. I consider myself an author and artist! I even sew.
Country life is pleasing but I also enjoy city life and being able to explore museums and art collections on my time off. I love adventure and helping out. My primary offerings to help you include: Personal chef, party/event planning help, house sitting, green errand runner, organizing, organic yardwork with emphasis on weed pulling by hand, sweeping and raking, planting herbs and vegetables. The fun extra things I can do: Whisper to dogs, mend clothes, paint a room, put together themed gourmet picnics, fold origami stars, do errands on a bike, identify sea turtles, help people start journal writing-drawing-meditating with music, lead an effort to write and put on a play plus build props and paint old-school backgrounds, learn guitar together and yodeling, and anything else we can dream up for me to help with. These things have value and are my passion. My joy is in helping others. It is like music.
Whatever you need help with, I will make it happen.
