  • Our status


  • Description

    We are a "just retired" couple from Canada eager to explore more of the world. In our past, we ran our own bed and breakfast in North Vancouver, Canada, welcoming visitors and new immigrants to our country and community. Ray was a site supervisor for construction of large homes and Sharon was a paralegal working in family law. We also have property that we enjoy renovating from time to time, as needed. Whilst our children were young we took a year to live with them in a small village in the South of France during which time we grew to love Europe and wish to return as often as possible. We have done some house sitting in the past which we have enjoyed. We look forward to new work away opportunities.

  • More details about your skills

    Ray has been involved in the building community for his working years from carpentry to supervising large projects. Sharon's career was in family law which required psychology, communication and clear writing skills.
