New Zealand is a great place to live and I have had the the opportunity to grow up in the far north by the sea and enjoyed swimming, fishing, sailing and the best of food. For most of my life I lived in Auckland which is the largest city in NZ and my career was in office management. Later in life I enjoyed being involved with classic yachts and had many happy times with great people. I am a lover of the arts - paint a little, work in an art gallery, adore most types of music (from classical to reggae,) movies and reading. My family are all foodies and are good cooks. I am a devoted grandmother and mother and my family bring me heaps of pleasure and fun. I have travelled a lot throughout NZ and the rest of the world and hope to do more - Italy being my favourite destination. The architecture inspires me to paint. I am even confident to travel alone if necessary. I moved to Queenstown in 2010 and think it has to be the best place in the world. There is such a buzz about Queenstown with so many adventures to be had, the scenery is breathtaking, and everyone is so happy! It is easy to be at peace with the world in such a special place - come join us.
