Alistair and I (Stephanie) are both descended from Scottish immigrants into Dunedin, Otago in the 1860s. Our NZ heritage is of pioneer families farming the land and of professional men and women seizing opportunity in a new colony. Both of us have a keen interest in NZ history and have lived the quintessential Kiwi way of life where anything is possible. We went to university (in the days when they were paid to go!) and have made the most of opportunities available to develop our careers. Alistair comes from a farming background and is a good keen man hunting and skiing. Loving the outdoors he has participated in multisport events including the iconic Coast to Coast racing across the South Island.
I have challenged myself with many turns in my career loving the hospitality industry but also thriving on management, accounting and marketing. An artistic edge assists with interiors and art appreciation. My book collection challenges many small libraries and I love to share my latest read…
Both of us have travelled widely both nationally and internationally. Between us we have explored most of New Zealand and its special places well but we can also communicate with and enjoy people from all over the world.
