As a lecturer in tourism and travel and a wedding celebrant I Moved from South East London to Tauranga NZ in 1991 . Married to Steve who is a wedding photographer and artist (he is a finalist in this years World of Wearable Art held in Wellington) and we have 4 boys, Luke, Michael and Jordon and Conor all who have now flown the nest and are either doing there own OE or at Uni! We have 1 brown lab, named Chaka, a one eyed cat and a canary!!
A Great life...we just love having visitors, every NZ winter we have kiwi fruit workers staying from Malaysia, the same girls come every year we are like their 2nd home, they stay March-October, consequently we only have the rooms empty for the NZ summer which is perfect for travellers.
Steve and I both love fishing ( we have small motor boat) and love diving for Scallops, we are literally a stone's throw from the beach, the views are spectacular from the houseplus we have an awesome boat club built over the sea which visitors can use, we have a restraunt and small store, not much else....Omokoroa is so pretty and so safe!
