I am a proud New Zealander who loves to show off my beautiful city. I'm a retired adult educator and Michael is a semi-retired accountant.I love to read, especially autobiographies and memoirs. Other favourite things I enjoy are going to the movies, writing, working out at the gym, and fishing from our motorboat. Michael and I love to travel. We've taken the Trans Siberian Railway through Russia, Siberia, Mongolia and China, stayed in an eco lodge in the middle of the Amazon jungle, and visited the Galapagos Islands plus many other adventures. Our style of travelling is staying away from impersonal large hotels, instead staying in B&B's and small boutique hotels. I have learnt the importance of guests feeling relaxed and comfortable, and will go the extra mile to make their holiday a memorable and happy experience.
