We are just an hour away from Invercargill, 90 minutes from Central Otago, Dunedin and The Catlins Coast, 2 hours to Queenstown, and Te Anau. 17 kms to the nearest town, Gore. Ideally situated as a base for day trips. We have three spare bedrooms.
We are new to this, but are active members of couchsurfing and have been for seven years. We have hosted more than we have surfed, but would like to be a part of the airbnb community too.
We love meeting people, having interesting conversations and lively discussions, laughing out loud (Robyn in particular), comparing idiosyncrasies with travellers, and enjoy sharing life in general :-), travel, music, theatre, bike riding (pedal power), petrol-heads (classic cars and V8's including most forms of car racing).
Graeme very keen on restoring cars and as an ex farmer anything to do with sheep and beef farming, actually agriculture in general.
I like reading, ancient cultures and have an interest in natural healing therapies.
We are easy-going and socially very busy people while both working full time.
I am apparently forthright but with a keen sense of humour, and Graeme is considered quiet and laid back.
We used to farm around 900 acres, but have now leased it out.
Two adult sons who live away from home, grandparents of 2 girls, 17 years and 5, and boy who is 11. Family and friends are very much a priority.
