I was born and raised in lovely Canada.
In the 70`s I moved to New Zealand and lived in this large house with a garden in West Auckland for 40 years.
Because I enjoy meeting and learning from other nationalities I have traveled the UK and also lived in Asia for 10 years. There I taught English. Now I sometimes host foreign students learning English in NZ and I work for a health and nutrition company.
I am a friendly, cultural open person. I love my grandkids, they, my family and friends visit frequently.
Having reached Senior Citizen status so I can benefit from help.
I am a vegetarian but there are takeaways nearby.
It`s close to good wooded walks, parks and beaches. There is a close bus stop and you can reach the city center within 40 min by bus or 20 min by car.
