We are from Wellington, New Zealand, and both (email hidden) of Wellington (myself, with the University Council, and my partner is an executive officer in the Office of the Pro Vice Chancellor Maori). We have two children (who won't be joining us on this trip), aged 4 and 8. We live on the Kapiti Coast which is a coastal area about 40 minutes outside of the CBD. We are very family oriented and spend most of our time providing opportunities for our children to travel and experience life and culture. In addition we work alot with our communities. I am the Chairperson for a community organisation called Mana Tiaki ((email hidden)). My fiance works very closely with his iwi (tribe) and writes many entries for the NZ online encyclopedia as a result ((website hidden)) Please feel free to add me as a friend on (website hidden) to learn more about us.
