  • Description

    Dear Future Host,

    My name is Doris, a 31 year old Slovenian traveller soul, since summer 2017.

    I am dependable and responsive person, with a natural tendency to take care of the people and its surrounding. In the last decade, I have learned that my profession is in tourism, my home is in the nature and my mind in a personal growth.

    For the last 12 months my home was in Myanmar, Thabarwa meditation center. And although I am very grateful for this place and opportunities that though me many things about myself, I feel that time has come to change the environment and conditions in order to gain new skills.

    New Zealand has always been a “must see” destination on my radar. With approved working-holiday visa, I am just a step closer to make it possible.

    My expectations regarding this trip are; to be accommodated in a green area, learned about farming and understand the Kiwi way of life.

    Thank you for your time and consideration of reading my profile.
