Trade Florence Italy for Eugene Oregon, summer 2020?

Hi Everyone, I'm a PhD student living in Eugene Oregon. The Olympic track trials are coming here this summer and I'm hoping to find a track fan who wants to trade my well-situated home (three blocks from campus+ the trials, yet in a quiet, lovely neighborhood) for a home in Florence for the Summer. Likewise if you are not interested in Eugene I'm offering my house and pet-sitting services OR able to pay a bit for a rental but not much. I have dog-sitting references, have volunteered at animal shelters in the past, and am a true animal lover. I'm coming to Florence with my boyfriend of 19 years (we're both 55+) to study Italian From June 3-Sept. 25. Thanks so much! Michelle

I am a graduate student in Media Studies at the University of Oregon. Previously I had a 30-year career in journalism. I am in my second year of Italian studies, and have dog training from two humane societies. I have also raised many cats and small animals. I am looking for a house-sitting situation in Rome, Florence, or some other awesome place in Italy. I have references from another person in Italy that I have house and dog sat for if you would like! PS, I would be happy to do free social media marketing or build you a website in exchange for time in your home! I can also help with writing in English or copy edit if needed.
