Hi, we are Alan and Louise. We have been Workawayers ourselves in past years, whilst travelling in Europe and the UK. We loved the work experience, meeting new people, the sharing of cultures. We are now retired (ex teachers), but we are beginning a new adventure here at home in Taranaki. We have built a new house and are making a new garden. We have 2 acres of native bush needing a track developed. Alan plays ukulele, guitar and mandolin so there will be an opportunity to jam. His stone sculptures are a major feature of our garden. We have had many friends and travellers stay with us over the years. We would love to meet new ones, along with appreciating their help around our home. Our two grown up sons are forging their own life adventures, so we presently have room in our home for others.

Our Maunga, Mount Taranaki, is a beautiful part of our province. There are several bush tracks to enjoy. We have a beautiful park in the centre of New Plymouth city. You can drive around the mountain easily in a day, stopping at interesting art and craft shops and eating places. We have great beaches to stroll along and a fabulous coastal walkway to walk or hire a bike. And of course there are numerous museums and galleries in easy driving distance. Should you not have a vehicle, we are happy to take you some places or help you find public transport.
