  • Description


    Now I’m retired and do housesitting mostly Longterm
    Which turned out to be and run a small B&B
    Sometimes I need also a workaway. So please get in touch. Come and help out for a short or longer time.

    A little about me

    I like to meet young and old from different countries. Learn about their tradition and culture. Love Spain, the people, the quality of live, the Wine, the Food and the Language
    I lived/ worked in England, Canada, Spain, Amerika, New Zealand and Australia . I always was and loved to be with the natives.
    Love music of all kinds, read a lot , like history and walking in the woods. Cooking, backing , make my own marmelade ..., and I like to laugh.
    I have 4 children and 3 grandchildren, they live in England except my youngest daughter, she lives close to Lake Constance with her son in Germany.
    I am also a little crazy and like adventure as you can see on the motocross bike foto which I did.
    Now I am looking forward to have it a little bit more quiet times. Who ever will come to help should feel also at home!
    Working times and hours can be arranged , so you also have time to explore or do what ever you like.
