We live the dream on a beatiful farmlet in the Bay of Islands. Close to everything and too many adventures to be had.
I am a retired Naturopath and Osteopath and well traveled myself. I volunteered in 2 projects in Africa .. It was amazing.
Joe is American, on his way to becoming a Kiwi. He has recently retired after 25yrs as a State Trooper... He is a regular genius. Not your regular Bloke. Loves hiking, wine making, bee keeping, flying and guitar.
