  • Description

    Jon has spent most of his career working with troubled children and young people for NGOs and in government. Jon has also worked for the Department of National Parks, in a professional capacity. Mel ran a small house sitting business for many years and has a great love of animals as well as an appreciation and respect for homes and spaces that belong to others.
    We are currently travelling the world and looking to immerse ourselves in local experiences. We are passionate travellers who are willing to embrace any new experience. We have had a wide variety of work experience over our lifetimes. Although the last few years have been spent in local government and health services, we have also worked in the fields of hospitality, customer service and when travelling have taken on jobs as an au pair, farm hand and bar tender.

    Over the years we have renovated our homes, with the help of professionals (we know our limits).

    We are willing to give anything a go. We do not mind getting our hands dirty.
