My name is Monique van de Kant. Born (1972) and raised in a small village in the Netherlands we always use to have cats and dogs in my family.
Having two Bachelor's degrees (one in teaching at primary schools and one in cultural & social education) I've had a wide variety of jobs. Back in 2010 I felt it was time for a big change; I traveled the world for two years and decided I needed a much slower pace of living compared to my peers. I found out I preferred to own less allowing me to be more connected to places, people, animals and nature surrounding me.
As of 2015 I chose not to have my own home and I again started traveling but this time mainly in my country of birth. Accompanied by my backpack and often times my push bike for five years I would travel from pet sit to pet sit living of the money I earned with this service.
Currently I am happily living together with my boyfriend Dijk in a cute city-center-cottage in Deventer. I still love to travel to new places, and come and house sit and pet sit. And I'd be more than happy if I could bring Dijk, who thoroughly enjoys the company of pets too.
