Hi! I'm Suz, and here's a little about me.
Back home in New Zealand I fill my weekends up by getting out and away whenever I can, from trekking up through the bush to a remote hut or driving out to the coast to a batch, I really enjoy an adventure, getting outside and out of town - so does my dog!
I also enjoy running and mountain biking.
I come from a family of 6 so am used to the hectic busy family life - and all that comes with it!
I’ve grown up in a semi-rural area of New Zealand so am familiar with a bit of country life, from gardening, looking after animals (this includes our siblings) and helping out round our home with whatever needs doing.
I am passionate about looking after our incredible world we're lucky enough to live on!
I enjoy Workaway’s as they provide a much more authentic way of travelling the world. I love getting submerged in the true day to day way of life in new countries. Workaway is such a lovely way to get involved in the culture and to meet people in a more personal way which is what I love and enjoy.

Special dietary requirements
I eat plant based food & I can accomodate this pretty easily :) I enjoy cooking plant based food for people to try & am also really open to other peoples food preferences :) I eat seafood when fishing or diving, I am pretty relaxed about it all
