I have a small cottage in the Aveyron region of southern France, but as I am now in my 90s I can no longer get to it on my own! I would like to find someone who would collect me from my home in Mid Sussex and drive me down to my cottage, sharing my life there for a couple of weeks and then driving me home again. All reasonable expenses paid!

Dear Sasha,
Your FB page was removed from your message before I received it, so could you please tell me a bit more about yourself? What age are you? Are you male or female? What is the best time of year for you to travel? Do you have any experience with old people?

Thank you!

Hello Roxy !
Thanks for giving attention on my replay!
I must say that my post was removed by my mistake, because I don't follow some rules of this forum and insert link to my fb page. I do that to give you some resource to where you can see that I am real person.
I apologize to all in this community for my little rushed step.
So I am 48 years old male, I am father of 3 already grownup kids . I am sure that I can handle most of neediness for older people, and also I know to be good company for people with different characters.
I know more or less what I can expect.
I working in my own company, so I give to my self permission for days and time for traveling :)
I am ready to provide any information for me , and also I want to knew more about you and your expectations.
So please contact me in private message.
Greetings!

Sas13:

Do you live in the UK? Where?

What sort of car do you have? Is it fully-insured to use in the UK and in France?

I'm not sure the cost of driving from Macedonia to the UK (and then down to the south of france plus the same in reverse) would be viewed by many people as 'reasonable expenses'.

LPG- with price in my country I drive 1000 km with about 50 eur. Price for LPG in most of EU is about 20 cents more expensive. So I travel a lot and fuel is not on my issue list!
By the way, maybe lady have own car or want to rent or whatever. So I need little from your faith, in positive manner !
Oh, I forgot insurance... green card is name!

Why is Sas13 now Edelweisse13...

Macedonia to Sussex is probably close to 3,000km each direction plus hotels and ferries (and wear and tear on the vehicle) ...

The OP said "someone who would collect me from" which suggests she does not have her own car.

Anyway, you can private message her (include your FB in the message if you want) and maybe it's something she would be willing to do.
