    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    I’m a hardworking Canuck who caught the travel bug only recently. High on my list of qualities I value are kindness to self and others, cleanliness/ orderliness and professionalism. I am terrible at remembering and telling jokes but love to laugh and have fun. I’m a foodie: I eat everything except hazelnuts (allergy) and animal brains, eyes, intestines and feet! I love nature but, unlike many of my fellow Canadians, I prefer warmer weather. I have an office job and teach yoga on the side, but arranged a self-funded sabbatical year for me to see more of the world (my friends joke that I'm taking a gap year at mid-life!). I walked the Portuguese Camino de Santiago in October and took off for New Zealand on January 1st. I love this place, and would appreciate spending some of my time here in one place to get to know "real" Kiwis.
