I am happy to meet people along the way for periods of time.
Moving to the south island, rides available along the way from
Taranki region to Wellington, to Christchurch, to Dunedin. Please
message me soon!!
I am useful and both, willing and happy, to learn new skills in life. I will help with almost anything you need help with.
I am courteous, friendly, easy going, clean after myself, and a good worker. I value privacy, mind my own business, and would like the same manners respectfully returned to me.
I try to get to know someone first through observation and initial communications before opening up new conversations, as it is courteous to both of us. I respect and appreciate people as authentic individuals, please beware I am one too.
I like to get out and ride a mountain bike, hike, or play in the ocean and catch waves. I enjoy swimming often and other water activities. I like creating art and learning new things. I want to learn how to surf again, and do it often!! (I did it in Costa Rica when I was 19, several Kiwis were sailing around the world and taught me how to catch waves- I haven't had the opportunity again since then.)
Pets and kids like me.
I think I would like to own and live on a boat some day. I like learning about off-grid living, organic plants, and self sufficiency. I hope to have my own land someday as well.
A Good First Experience:
The best part of helpx in NZ for me was that I lost a lot of useless weight/shape, due to eating healthy organic food with people on farms. I am much skinner, healthier, and happier from the work, diet, and reduced stress. I have grown from my social activities with travelers and Kiwis.
What I have learned with helpx:
So far in NZ: I learned hedge trimming, pulling weeds, cutting out maggots in lamb wool, cleaning a bnb room and wiping fly poop off, a wee bit more on gardening...enjoyed outdoor solar powered showers.
Professional hairdresser, basic computer technician, CDL school bus driver, security, waitressing, a bit of temp housekeeping at hotels, general house and yard work growing up, including painting the inside and trim of houses, fences, etc...
