Pocketrocket: I am Liz. I am an ardent German traveller in the early 30`s and arrived lately in New Zealand with a working holiday visa.
I am highly excited about this country and its beauties. I want to come together with locals, work at peerless places, enjoy the variety of the countryside and experience special moments as much as I can as I did in stunning Australia before.
All together 15 month I travelled and worked around “down under” in very individual and exciting ways.
I was truly lucky when I joined the delightful crew of Lune de Miel (57` motor sailor ketch) recently to sail the Coral Coast and the countless Islands around Whitsundays of Queensland from Cairns to the Gold Coast for about a month. My main tasks were to cook and clean. Not an easy job with 3 guys hungry almost 24 hours a day! But I did it! I joined the guys when they went spear fishing and I cleaned and cooked it up afterwards. Delicious!
Night sailing belongs to my favourites. It always felt like flying with a magic carpet, having a seat on deck, spread arms and watch the stars or the sparkling plankton.
But anyway I loved it and it topped all! Not many people get to see, that I had luck to explore and I am vastly grateful for this adventure. Now I am looking forward for the next one on the ocean, that’s coming up.
I can vouch for a pretty high and healthy physical and mental fitness level. There are a few things I am passionate about, which help to keep me fit. I am very delight in Fire Pois and I almost can`t stop lightening up places at any time.
Music is constantly with me, doesn’t matter in which ways. Last year I travelled with my Violin, I started to play, when I was 6, shortly I bought an Uke, always with me now.
Back in Germany I use to work self-employed as a canoe guide, showing Berlin visitors the lovely sights of this great place from the riverside. So I am use to be on water anyway. I enjoyed this kind of work very much. It is outdoor and every day is different. I met a lot of funny and interesting people, I had travelling in common.
I am a hard, independent and disciplined worker, but with humour and fun. I love to work hand in hand with others, I am always ready to improve myself and I easily pick up new working skills.I am motivated to learn how to sail and looking forward to hop on your yacht.
You can`t go wrong with getting me on board.
