My motto is -
Everyday is a new Beginning so Live for Today!
Moving from inland Australia to Tathra, on the New South Wales south coast, 16 years ago, I have really grown to love this area – feels like I am always on holidays. And I live like it too – my interests include my family, dining out, gardening, live music, and lots of outdoor activities ie. Bike riding, ocean swimming, standup paddle boarding, dragon boat paddling, kayaking, tennis, yoga and bushwalking. Along with working full time and my activities I am “at home” very little.
As a frequent traveller, I have enjoyed experiencing different locations and the interactions with fellow travellers, within Australia and overseas. I have stayed at Airbnb's in Rome, Florence and Sorrento in Italy, San Francisco and Los Angeles in USA, Paris, Lisbon, Burgau in Portugal, several cities in Spain, New York, Washington DC also Port Douglas and Ulladulla in Australia and really enjoy that accommodation option which gives a greater insight to the food, culture and lifestyle of the locations.
As your host - I enjoy meeting new people and delight in showing people around my home town. My goal is to enhance your holiday experience and to help you live your dreams, as others have done for me when I have travelled overseas.
I look forward to sharing my local knowledge of Tathra with you when you visit. Tathra has been voted as one of the top 100 place to visit, see website - (URL HIDDEN)
