Hi, my name is Terri and I am Professional Pet Sitter - I board dogs in my home, do cat, bird & rabbit visits and dog walking. Greg & I have a cat named Pixie Gato who is at the top of the list of the things I can't live without! I love & respect animals and treat everyone's pet as if they were my own.
My other business is providing demonstrations for various health and natural food products. I am health conscious and prefer to eat fresh, local, organic, wholesome foods whenever possible. I am a certified Wellness Consultant and have been involved with the health food industry for over 20 years. Previously, I was employed as an E.S.L. Teacher and Employment Counsellor.
My life partner (David) Greg has worked in the banking industry for 15 years and is an avid cyclist. He cycles to work (20km each day) 10 months out of the year. Winters in Toronto can be a bit treacherous on the roads, especially on the hills! He is also a huge music fan, plays guitar and speaks fluent French and Spanish. We practiced Italian in 2014 during our 2 week trip around Italy in April, 2014.
We both love travelling and another great trip was travelling throughout Spain in Oct. 2010. We are really excited about visiting the UK and The Netherlands. It has been on our bucket list for a very long time. We have quite a list of places we are planning to visit plus Greg's family throughout the UK.
I am a huge music lover and my tastes are varied. I really enjoy live local music wherever we visit to experience the culture and support local artists. I am really looking forward to visiting the museums, parks, & historical sites.
Greg & I are very open to new adventures. As guests, we are clean, respectful and conscientious of our hosts' home. We are not loud and we prefer an atmosphere of peace and solace. We treat every place we have stayed as if it is our own home. We do our best to leave it exactly as it was before our arrival.
Once we connect with our guest/hosts, we hopefully have made new friends for life. We have kept in touch with friends and hosts from previous trips so we look forward to adding people from the UK & The Netherlands to our "chosen" family!
Many thanks! We look forward to meeting our hosts.
