Maori New Zealander! I am a keen sportsman. Golf, fishing and tennis are three favourites!
I was raised on a NZ sheep and cattle farm and have lived and worked in Singapore, Australia and most recently 2.5 years in Cambodia.
As well as sharing the fantastic Nelson area with you I also enjoy adding the little things to your tour when we can. A game of golf (and we don't need to book!) Fishing (at our back door!) or just saying "Gidday" to one of our pet sheep (at our home)! It's those little extras which we as Kiwi's take for granted but which for many people they offer a special memory of "our place" Aotearoa / New Zealand. Look forward to meeting you all!
Originally from Wellington I have enjoyed living in a variety of places. We are now living in the beautiful Nelson/Tasman area and feel lucky that we can also work in such a place. I have worked as a teacher all my life in Wellington and environs, Christchurch, Bangkok and Nelson. However, I am currently enjoying a new challenge as I now own Bay Tours with my partner Owen Perry.
Owen and I have a small piece of land with chooks and a few sheep and plantings that encourage native birds. We plan to get a few more animals as time goes on.
After living overseas for four years it seems ideal that we can now share our 'patch' with our clients. I have traveled extensively and seen many wonderful places but I believe we have one of the most naturally beautiful and accessible countries in the world. It is an absolute privilege to be able to share some of the best of it with our clients. Our aim is to ensure visitors have a relaxed and memorable experience.
Life is too short to be anything but happy!
