Tena koe! I am a proud New Zealand Maori, living in Sydney, Australia with my Partner for the past ten years. I'm an easy going person who still lives life through my strong Kiwi cultural ties and family morals. We travelled through Europe in 2010 and we look forward to once again revisiting London & Paris as well as experiencing the sights of Amsterdam, Berlin, Venice and Rome in 2012. Like any traveller we are keen to immerse ourselves in the culture, and definitely the food of the country we are visiting, so any recommendations for 'must see/do/eat' while there would be welcomed. When we traveled in 2010 we rented apartments which we found through various websites. Since then we have discovered airbnb and hope that this will streamline our efforts to find private accomodation.
