I am a proud New Zealander who loves to show off my beautiful city. I'm a retired adult educator.I love to read, especially autobiogaphies and memoirs. Other favourite things I enjoy are- going to the movies, writing, working out at the gym, and fishing from our classic motorboat. Michael and I love to travel. We recently travelled on the Trans Siberian Railway through Russia, Siberia, Mongolia and China. My style of travelling is staying away from impersonal large hotels, but staying in B&B's and small boutique hotels. I have learnt the importance of guests feeling relaxed and comfortable, and will go the extra mile to make their holiday a memorable and happy experience.
