I have traveled to Greece, Zambia, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Canada, and England. I say this only to explain that traveling for a house sitting position is something I am willing to do. I am currently in Washington finishing graduate school. I do not smoke or drink, and I will take care of your home the way I would take care of my own.
