  • Description

    Having returned to the UK for 6 months of very enjoyable Pet/House Sitting consignments in Ecuador and Costa Rica I worked through seven ( including one repeat ) House/Pet Sits around SW England. I then was requested for maintenance volunteer jobs in the stunning island of Koh Rong Sanloem, Fiji then Niue, a tiny Island/Nation 4 hrs flight time north of Auckland. Cambodia was definitely mind altering in a way that everything just happened to fall apart as soon as any maintenance work was done, and that was not exclusive to materials but also most of the tools ! When a regular 10 minute job takes up to 6 hours you learn the true meaning of patience, empathy and reward ! Also mind altering in the superb parties of crazy youngsters who treated me (and still do ) like some mad eccentric Grandad and hence enrolled into the wildest most gorgeous extended family !
    Fiji living in the real Fijian family homes and creating a very unique Eco Glamping style Resort was rewarding as Fijians are one of the most friendliest people on earth and showed their penchant for happiness and fun at every possible moment. In both Cambodia and Fiji my Hosts have asked me to return to give them further help. Last year I spent a very memorable time in the Maldives, the most gorgeous islands.
    I retired from the Building Trade, having renovated over 120 Houses, and previous to that employed over 100 people in my architectural metal work business, regularly travelling to the Middle East and India, very exciting times when Dubai was just a muddy creek ! I’ve travelled to over 60 Countries ( some for work and a lot for
    pleasure ). I’m considered totally reliable, considerate, completely trustworthy, sensitive, hard working, very practically minded and able to adapt to most situations and lifestyles, very much a hands-on person, so Kitchen and Bathroom fitting, plumbing, basic electrics, stonework, flooring, tiling and complete renovation work are all tasks I thoroughly enjoy.
    I enjoy swimming, diving, sailing, walking, reading, meeting people of all cultures, motor racing, cooking, design and architecture, assisting with conservation work, all aspects of nature,, architecture, organising, hands on working, pet sitting, housekeeping and travel, etc. I’ve owned my own farms, so well used to animal husbandry with sheep, goats, donkeys, chickens, ducks, pigs, geese etc .
    Wow ! I sound perfect ! I also have a very good sense of humour ……………
