I'm 40 years old, 2 kids, originally from France but now Kiwi too. I arrived in New Zealand in 2005 and been enjoying its oudoors as much as possible by tramping or sailing. My longest tramp lasted 8 days and was made of the Rees-Dart connecting to the Routeburn. Being Wellington based, I have done the Tararua quite a few times. I usually like the effort, but get out there mainly to connect with nature and enjoy its wilderness.
I have been working for Telecom for 6 years and now work for DOC, but always in IT. Always keen to get out when I can.
