About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

G'day,
we're an international family, now back in NZ after a couple of years abroad. One Kiwi guy (32), one German Frau (35) and two mixed kids (2 and .5). we've been travelling on a long honeymoon and took a stab at settling in Ontario, Canada. We're now back in NZ, had a baby and bought a house, time for a bit of nice boring safe stability!
We love to host people from around the world to bring a bit of travel-feel to our house, now that we are a little "tied down" for a while.

PHILOSOPHY

Don't be a dick. Give it a go, but take it easy.
