Nelson and Elle
31, Employment tax lawyer
30, Healthcare development engineer
Hi and very nice to meet you!
We are Nelson and Elle and we are from Eindhoven, a city located in the South of the Netherlands. Currently we are travelling in New Zealand!
Nelson is Portuguese and moved from Lisbon (where he studied Aerospace engineering) to Porto to work on designing a plane. Later on (now 5 years ago), he moved to Eindhoven to work for a healthcare technology company (Philips) to help saving lives as an engineer of health care robots :)
Elle is Dutch and after her studies in Eindhoven and Tilburg (during which she did an internship in the Caribbean and voluntary work in Ghana, Africa), she moved to Amsterdam to work for an accountancy firm. Later she moved again to the Caribbean to live and work there for 3 years as an employment tax lawyer (for Ernst & Young). During a sabbatical, she went to Australia and New Zealand. Well.... we guess we don't need to explain why we want to come back to Australia right?
When Elle came back in Eindhoven, Nelson and Elle felt in love.... And they lived happily ever after :)
As we both love nature, cities, beaches and travelling, we have decided to go to Australia from April 2019 until ???. During our stay in Australia, we would love to fulfil our dream of writing a book and creating an app.
As we also love animals, we would love to do housesitting during our time there (PICK US, PICK US)! We are very flexible about the where's and when's.
Here is something more about us and animals. We LOVE dogs. We have always had dogs (and other pets) growing up and whenever Nelson sees a dog out on the streets it goes: oooooh that dog is soooo cute, can we have him/her? All other animals (expect for reptiles) we love too! Cats, sheep, chicken, horses, etc. will be very well taken care of. Elle did horseback riding for most of her youth.
About the tidiness of your house. Well... We thought let us just ask some friends for independent reviews.
- Eugenia van Dooren: "clean is Elle's middle name"
- Kevin Gielissen: "that dude is always making sure everything is super organized"
Just to be sure the message is clear: we are really clean and organized. We will make sure to return your house in a perfect state.
We are very much looking forward hearing from you and don't hesitate to ask anything that you would like to know about us!
P.s. check out the reviews we received while house and pet sitting in New Zealand :)
