  • Description


    Hello !
    My name is Connor, and I live with my Father (Tony). We live in a small coastal village called Pukenui in the Far North of New Zealand. Summer here can get very hot and mostly sunny, so we tend to spend a lot of time Fishing, Diving, Swimming and exploring all the beautiful beaches, waterfalls, rock-pools, and surf spots around our area. We enjoy what our natural environment has provided. We live quite a simple and quiet life, making time for our work, outdoors, friends, and down-time. Tony is a very skilled tradesmen, and I am slowly learning these skills while I am living here as we find work help our community. I travel quite often with the help of workaway, and we have enjoyed hosting travelers through other websites.
