My husband and I are WWOOFing (willing workers on organic farms) throughout NZ to learn about permaculture and organic farming, living more sustainably, and alternative lifestyles
After climbing our respective corporate ladders in NYC for years, we realized that we wanted something different for ourselves. We fell in love with NZ while on our honeymoon in the South Island, and moved to Auckland a year ago. After working for about 6 months we decided to throw caution to the wind and utilize the WWOOFing scheme as a way to learn about different ways to live more in line with nature. We've come to learn that every few months we need a few days break in order to rest, relax, and see some of the various areas we're staying in.
To create the life you want to live!
We both love tramping, mountain biking (though my husband is much more daring and skilled than I), learning about other cultures, music, reading, creative ventures, engaging discussions, and healthy ways to cook

Music, Movies, and Books
movies: wouldn't even know where to begin but particularly into comedies, animation films, and nothing too serious
music: Dave Mathews, Paul Simon, Indigo Girls, Ray LaMontagne, u2 (old school stuff), Sublime . . . again too many to name
books: Ishmael, Clan of the Cave Bear . . . again too many to get into
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
biked through Vietnam, an expedition through the Nelson Lakes in the South Island
