  • Description

    Description

    We are a kiwi family of 3 - Cat is a university lecturer, Adrian is a builder and Sophia is an energetic 8 year old. We have 2 cats, Muffy and Chowder. We were workawayers ourselves, travelling around Europe for a year until Covid sent us back home. We live in sunny Dunedin, in a house with a large garden, a short bike or bus ride from the city centre.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We loved our time travelling, seeing new places and meeting new people, and enjoy learning different languages and trying new food. It would be great to now bring the world to us! In return, stay with a kiwi family and experience our beautiful city. We enjoy food, cards and board games.

    We are renovating a property across the street from our house. Adrian is a builder and we already have other tradies on the job, so we aren't seeking skilled labour, just someone as a helping hand - lifting and moving things, cleaning up etc. There's also the garden and keeping an eye on Sophia, especially over the school holidays. She's pretty independent but loves meeting new people. Company and conversation would be great too!
