    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I'm a good all round kiwi guy.I even grew up o a sheep farm! I have worked on a large variety of different jobs over the years so have a lot of experiences there to talk about. I am open to learning about all cultures and backgrounds and look on the positive side of things as much as I can.I have hosted 50+ Couch Surfers and they have all given me positive references too

  • Help


    Gardening,firewood and sometimes building. I do a lot of firewood for myself,family,friends and charity.If you can operate a chainsaw that is a big plus.Otherwise loading and unloading trailers and operating a machine wood splitter(it is very safe,easy and just involves a light pull or push of a leaver).I take safety seriously and have all the safety gear from head to foot for myself and others. It won't be too heavy work.I don't like to push myself too hard either!
