Quelles sont vos compétences ?
Being a certified Yoga/Pilates Teacher and Personal Trainer, I can help losing weight, gaining flexibility and getting stronger. I'm happy to cook vegan food for people, If you need a house-sitter and/or somebody to look after your pets, I've done both many times. And if you've got a guitar, I can teach you how to play and sing or entertain your guests with classics from Cash to Sinatra.

If you think catering for vegans is difficult, think again: Fruits, vegetables, grains and beans are available everywhere. I often cook for people who are interested in trying vegan food, it's delicious, cheap and quick. I totally respect other diets, to each their own.
