My name is Marita and my family and I will be your hosts :)
We are originally from Switzerland but have moved here with the entire family 7 years ago. Me and my 3 children (17, 23 and 25) live on a 4 hectare property in beautiful Welcome Bay. The children all go to secondary school/university. My daughter (Nina) and I are the ones you are most likely to encounter as we will be looking after you and help you out if there is any problems.
Our family is open-minded and open-hearted. We love meeting new people and learning about different cultures. Apart from work/study we often spend weeks during summer doing bush clearing and cultivating the land e.g. planting trees, fencing etc. We are hands on people who love a good laugh and spending time together.
Hobbies vary, we are mostly outdoorsy people. I personally love gardening. Nina is into fishing, snowboarding and hiking. The boys usually go cliff and bridge jumping during summer as well as paragliding, snowboarding and skiing. If you are planning your trip through NZ feel welcome to ask for advice as we have been pretty much everywhere :)
