FAVOURITE ACTIVITY:

Anything outdoors…fishing, skiing, hiking, rafting

 

FUNNIEST MOMENT:

In Lapland where I went “ice-fishing”.  I had to use one of those corkscrewy things to drill a hole in the ice approx. 15cm diameter, and sat on a wooden stool with my fishing line (whilst drinking mulled wine with friends), and wondering what I would do if I managed to hook a BIG one and it wouldn’t fit through the ice hole!!

 

WINTER OR SUMMER HOLIDAY:

I love winters in Europe..so cosy and a real Christmas experience walking through the markets there and the drinking the warming “gluhwein” at the skifields.

But in summer, it’s definitely time for fishing, diving, camping, swimming or hiking.

 

OBSESSION:

Love going into supermarkets in unusual countries….

 

FAVOURITE SWEET:

Dutch Almond Kerstkrans – yum and the smell of the stroopwafels in the markets in Holland.

 

LANGUAGES:

Dutch, some German and our Kiwi!!

 

LIVED OVERSEAS:

Spent a few years in Holland….the first time, travelling around and visiting relations with some holiday stints working in a carrot factory and mushroom picking in hothouses. Then back a few years later setting up a travel agency in Rotterdam specialising in travel to NZ and Australia, as well as handling group travel from all over the world for volunteers and missionaries meeting up with Mercy Ships in West Africa.
