Hey, I'm Melanie!
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada · Member since September 2012

I am really new to airbnb but please don't let that stop you from considering me! I am a Pastry Chef (34) who absolutely loves what she does and my husband Daniel (28) is in the Canadian Navy currently on exchange with the New Zealand Navy. As such, we have decided to finally take the plunge and tackle my #1 Bucket List item! Yeah!!! We are both so excited to be travelling through New Zealand on to Australia and back to NZ. Flying from Victoria, BC, Canada, I will be meeting up with my husband in Auckland, NZ on Christmas Day (best Christmas gift....ever!!!!)before we fly out to Sydney on the 28th of Dec. to begin our Australian Adventure! We are keen to learn about new cultures, we love the outdoors (camping/hiking), museums, cooking, eating good food, enjoying a nice glass of beer or wine on the patio, theater, reading, I love love love chocolate (the darker the better) making new friends, having great conversations, and I love photography (an amateur who's learning) Hence one of the reasons we'd like to experience New Year's Eve in Sydney so I can get a crack at taking one pic of the fireworks over the Harbor Bridge...crazy I know! I love horses (although I haven't ridden in years) and my hubby likes anything classic with a lot of horsepower! We are both mature with a wicked sense of humor. My husband loves music and has been broadening my horizons since we met and he also plays the classical guitar when he has time and isn't sailing! He also likes to dabble with other instruments but I'd say guitars are his passion as can be testified by our office wall collection! We are both clean, tidy and quiet individuals in the non-boring sense! We've been married for 6 years, no kids yet but proud owners of a very large, very white deaf and extremely stubborn cat who insists on trying to get into the fireplace and track soot everywhere (actually he tries to get into everywhere he isn't supposed too)! We love where we live being so close to the ocean (we love the ocean) but are so happy to be given the opportunity to explore a new country and given the opportunity to spend 5 glorious weeks together on holiday. If you have any questions or queries please don't hesitate to ask! We will truly and sincerely treat your home as our home with the utmost respect. Well that's us in a nutshell! If you require any recommendations from friends or family please let me know! Hope this helps you in learning more about us!!! Hope to hear from you soon,

Cheers
Melanie
