Hello from Eureka, California, USA :)

hello fellow travelers and pet lovers!

i am new to TH and learning my way around.

i’ll be listing my house sit as soon as i figure out my dates.

i will retire from teaching this June and look forward to travelling again. It would be fun to do some pet sitting from time to time. i would love to sit in the San Francisco Bay Area, as i lived there for many years. i am hoping to travel to Portugal in the fall and will be listing my house and hoping to sit for pets while i am there.

any helpful tips would be appreciated - thanks in advance <3


I hope you enjoy the website =)
