We're well travelled - and enjoy outdoorsy stuff, music, hosting, meeting new people, learning new things, gardening, playing sport, reading, brewing beer, eating nice food and drinking nice wine!
ABOUT STEVE: I enjoy hosting airbnb guests and am a great ambassador for New Zealand, but hey, I'm not going to bleat on about it (enter token Kiwi/sheep joke here). If the calendar is blocked out for a bit, it's likely because I'm out hiking for a few days or leading a trip for my travel company - Aspiring Adventures - check it out some time!
When I travel, I like to mix up levels of accommodation from camping to the odd luxury lodge. I try to step outside the usual touristy stuff and tackle something a unique (I've climbed the highest peak in Fiji and Ecuador, slept in a cave in Turkey, have a godson in the Peruvian Andes after a trek to visit the "Lost Incas", and stayed with hunter-gatherers in the jungles of Vanuatu...).
ABOUT ELKE: I'm originally from Germany and love living here in Dunedin. I enjoy hosting guests from all over the world, and it's fun having German guests to talk about things back there. Like Steve, I enjoy travelling to new places. When at home I love gardening, baking, photography, arts and crafts, and expanding my Spanish language skills.
Hosting - well, hosting is great fun! To sum it up, it's like travelling without having to travel :)
