    Description

    I have been living in Spain since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020. I worked as a journalist in the United States for over two decades. My job as a journalist took me to many different countries across the world. I love traveling and meeting new people. You will feel welcomed here. We eat mainly vegetarian and would love to have someone with us who is also a vegetarian. I have been practicing Zen meditation for a few years. If you happen to practice meditation, I would love to have company.

    We are waiting for you in Ortigueira, a beautiful village by the sea in La Coruña (Galicia), northwestern Spain.

    I currently care for my elder mother, our three-apartment home, and a big garden. You will live with our cats and us. It would be great to have help with the house and the garden, and my mom. Experience with home repairs, carpeting, painting walls, and gardening would be fantastic.

    We have an amazing beach only two kilometers away and a very sweet downtown within walking distance. There are amazing places to go hiking and wonderful beaches that never get too crowded.
