Nelson, New Zealand · Member since June 2011

I'm a 50 something ex-pat (USA) living here in New Zealand for the last 20 or so years. The geology here in NZ shares many similarities with California so I feel right at home with the rocks, dirt and earthquakes. Nelson has some of the best weather in the country (also an appeal) and great clouds.

As a "world citizen" I find travel (and travelers) that something special about sharing this planet. I speak some Spanish and a little French. Also Australian...
