  • Description

    Hello and "Guten Tag" from Hamburg, Germany!

    About myself : I am an 18 year old girl from the North of Germany. I am interested in art, literature, nature, politics and philosophy. I love to travel (with my tent and a good friend). My hobbies include going to the gym and drawing (if possible in the sun, but that's a very rare occasion thanks to Hamburg's cold rainy climate.. ).
    I am finishing school with the "Abitur" in June and after that am planning to travel for a few months before moving to The Netherlands for university. Since studying for my final exams took most of my free time, I decided to give up my favorite hobby, which is being around and riding horses in March.
    I have 6 years of riding experience (dressage) and had a "Reitbeteiligung" for two years, which means that I took care of a horse whose owner was very busy on 4 days a week, including grooming, cleaning the box and paddocks, feeding and riding.

    My parents moved to New Zealand with me and my little sister when I was 5, we lived in Waipukurau, Hawkes Bay, North Island for three years.
    This August I can finally return to New Zealand after we moved back to Germany in 2009.
    First, I am of course going to return to my old hometown to reunite with friends. For Oktober and November, I would love to explore other areas of New Zealand, e.g. by working on a farm (preferably with horses).

    I am used to hard work and don't mind getting dirty. I am willing to help wherever it is needed, including work in the household and kitchen (I would call myself a quite decent cook).
    It is very important to me that I am around interesting, friendly people since I tend to feel a little lonely sometimes.

    I promise you I am a friendly and open minded person, eager to learn and hungry for new experiences!

    Best regards,

    Laura :)
