I'm a Kiwi student from Christchurch, who is looking to do postgraduate study in Auckland. I want a more gentle introduction to the city and don't want to live right in the CBD, so living with a local family to start off with sounds like a great idea.
I'm planning to do a Graduate Diploma in Geography. I like the outdoors, parks, forests, reserves, a calm, thoughtful stroll through them is great.
I'm a quiet guy and calm under most circumstances. I'm open to making new friends, enjoy company, but I do need some alone time now and then.
I'll spend most evenings reading a book or on my laptop, listening to music, or hanging out with whoever I'm living with. On rare occasions, I do like to go out with friends (though I don't have many friends in Auckland, so not much to worry about there).
I'm interested in staying at a home for the first 6 weeks of my study. If I fit in well, I could stay for the rest of the year if that's alright.
