  • Description


    I live in beautiful Rotorua, New Zealand. Rotorua is famous for its mountain biking, lakes and steaming geothermal hot pools. I am lucky to live directly across the road from the magical redwood forest known as Whakarewarewa Forest with its hectares of mountain bike trails and walking tracks.

    The beautiful blue lake is only 4 mins drive up the hill and town centre is an easy flat 15min bike ride away. I have a spare mountain bike you can use as often as you want and also have a kayak stored at a friends at the lake.

    I have a very friendly dog who loves going on forest walks and runs. There are glow worms a 2 minute walk from my house and the local bus runs every half an hour from town.

    I have a lovely old character 1950s house which I'm slowly doing up and also work quite long hours. In my spare time I love biking and exploring with my dog so often I don't have time for gardening and cooking. I love healthy salads and would love yo come home to a selection of salads and to see my gardens looking tidy. 😀
