I love reading, listening to music, practicing my Spanish, eating good food and drinking good wine. I have long had a love of the bush, our special New Zealand landscapes and our native flora and fauna and recently, connected to this, I have become committed to reducing my rubbish production and living as sustainably as possible. This is definitely a work in progress.
