We are immigrants, having come to NZ in 1989. We lived in many places and settled down on a 2 acre block after cruising for 4 years. We have done farming of beef cattle, goats and alpaca. Hans currently works in the boating industry and Jeannette is on the lifestyle block fulltime, managing gardens and orchards. She is interested in weaving and pottery and cooking, preserving all the fruit etc. In their former (pre-cruising) lives he was an IT person and she working in animal health care and administration.
We live in the far north of New Zealand, close to the Bay of Islands, Ninety Mile Beach, Hokianga and more interesting places.
Jeannette bakes her own bread, makes wine and Hans brews his own beer. We live in a very comfortable, rustic house and offer a nice bedroom to our guests.
