NZer living and working in Japan as researcher (ethnobotany) and gardener, and occasionally sharing a house in Auckland, NZ, with family-friend/house-sitter/English teacher. \
As a working hobby, I run a global social network called The Research Cooperative (see (email hidden)).
I have set up an affiliate programe with AirBnb and have a link to their site on the top page of our network. It's a suitable thing for researchers, students and the like.
We often travel!
