  • Description

    Hello my name is Susanne, i was
    born in Germany, trained 3 years in the hospitality industry , and worked in many hotels, restaurant,
    housekeeping and catering businesses in many different countries.
    I also enjoyed being a tour guide in Australia,
    a Kajak / Kanu guide in
    France, and I was working on prawn trawlers (regrettably) in Darwin, Australia and also sailed and lived in the Caribbean islands and the Bahamas for 6 months. I spend a few years working on a Cruise ship and a local ferry boat in Auckland when I finally settled in New Zealand gaining a Diploma in Naturopathy and had a family in Taupo.

    I'm a world traveller appreciating other cultures, ethnic groups and have a big passion for animals and people from all walks of life. I spent 3 years in the Cape Verde Island (an island of the West African coast) volunteering with big Kareta turtle for 6 months ,running my own bar & restaurant and feeding hungry street dogs.

    I have travelled to 38 countries last year my travels included Borneo and Madagascar, but my big passion are still Humpback Whales :)
    I shared my life with many very specials indiginous man and woman while living a simple but happy life.

    In April 2018, I spend 3 month travelling and living with a Kenian family in a mud house with 9 people helping with cooking, cleaning, fetching fire wood and looking after lots of beautiful goats and cows.

    I was working as a Head Housekeeper with 28 housekeeping staff in Queenstown New Zealand, but ready for a new challenge in my life. Currently on a family visiting trip in Austria helping on a farm.
