Hi we are Sarah and Karim,
An Irish Italian couple sharing a passion for travel and the natural world. We are very active enjoying yoga, hiking, running, surfing, swimming and cycling. Animals have been apart of both our lives since the beginning so we are very aware of the love and presence felt in their company. It can be challenging to travel with a pet and housesitting this is a perfect way to continue sharing our space with other beautiful beings on our travels.
We both grew up in homes that had many animals as part of the family …. dogs, cats, hamsters, fish and chickens. I have experience in caring for sick and timid animals as my sister who is a vet often brought home sick animals to care for whilst living together.
I (Sarah) am a Social Care worker and have 3 years experience in the area of residential setting caring for people with intellectual disabilities. The role includes running of the home, cleaning and maintaining and in some of the homes there were pets.
Additionally as home owners we are very aware of the maintenance needed on upkeep of a property and will treat your home as we would our own.
Karim is an Electronic Technician and has volunteered with on "workaways" including animal care and also in building/ garden maintenance.
