Originally from New Zealand, but now living in Australia with my partner of 12 years Zack, I love the relaxed attitude and lifestyle of the Aussies. And the weather here is fantastic! We live in Bangalow which is a little village in northern New South Wales (near Byron Bay). Zack and I both love cooking and we've just started a small vegie garden. I'm a Sunday golfer, but Zack plays A LOT. We also love getting down to the beach when we have the time. I work in a legal firm and Zack is a retired teacher. We love our home and would much prefer to stay in someone else's house/apartment/cottage/yacht/teepee than a bland boring hotel room. And no, in real life I'm not really a pirate!!
