  • Description

    We are a motivated german couple hoping to meet people ready to share knowledge and good times!

    I´m Melanie, 34 years old and I work as a marketing manger for the tourist board of a city in Germany.

    Robert ist 37 years old and he is a selfemployed concert promoter and artist booker. Besides he´s a professional chef (a thing that I appreciate very much :-)) and he LOVES cooking and talking about food. As he´s grown up in a Hotel and Restaurant he´s very social and open minded. He loves animals!

    Our interests are traveling, Photography, Yoga (Melanie), (live-)music and just being surrounded by nature. Eating and talking about good and healthy food is a big part of our live!

    We both really like our jobs but in the same time we are always looking for new things to learn and to share.

    I stayed at the Motel for nearly a week and I really enjoyed the time. Tasks are light housekeeping work for 3 hours a day. The best about this place is the good working atmosphere as Heather and Mike are kind people, always smiling, treating you with respect and appreciate your work!

    I stayed a week at the farm and I loved it! Heather and David are awesome, warm people that run the farm with lots of passion and heart. The tasks are different and never boring, you learn a lot by doing, watching and chatting. Heather and David (and of course Hamish) are always helpful and share their knowledge and ideas with you. That was one of my best experiences during my NZ time!!!
