Moved in 2007 with my family and a container from South Germany to New Zealand (Auckland). Initially, we only intended to stay for a couple of years, but then we fell in love with NZ and stayed. I never really thought I would ever leave NZ again to relocate - I found my home in Down Under!
But business brought me to the USA in late 2014 - and here we are now, in the middle of the Silicon Valley (Cupertino). I am working for a software company: I am responsbile for all client releated services, sometimes fun an dsometimes challenging ;-) . ..... But once the "job is done here" we will move back to Down Under!
Yes, I enjoy traveling around the world: Lot's of different places in Asia (during my university time), America (but just North America, I never managed to set foot on the south continent), plus all these wonderful tiny Pacific islands (since they are so easy to reach from New Zealand, like Niue, Vanuatu and Cook Islands)
I love to meeting open-minded people, and sharing stories on a nice evening on a veranda deck is always inspiring :)
Our entire family is very relaxed, we live the Kiwi style (even here in the US), .. and (at least) sometimes my German roots are still peeking through (lol). But I am pretty sure we will get well with our hosts and other guests :).
We are non smokers and respect your property and privacy. Dogs, cats and other pets are no problem for us (should you have any :).. And yes, we like it quiet :).
Have a great day - thank you for your time!
