My name is Gabriele. I am a business woman in my late 50s. Born in Germany I emigrated to New Zealand over 30 years ago. My children and grandchildren are New Zealanders but my extended family mostly lives in Europe. Consequently I travel a lot. I have friends all over the world and that's where airbnb comes in handy. Many overseas friends also come to visit me in New Zealand and so I know what it means to be a host. I will always treat somebody else's property like my own and be extremely careful in every aspect.
