    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    We live in a unique setting out on the east coast. Kirsty and I are Gisborne locals but we spent a fair bit of time overseas so love having overseas travellers to talk about different parts of the world with and expose our children to different ways of life. We work hard to include our visitors in everything we do from surfing at the beach and sailing in the bay through too school sports and cultural events. We pride ourselves in make our travelers part of the family.
