Bonjour! Je m’appelle Laure and I come from a country where we adore nice bread, cheese and wine :)
I arrived in New Zealand in 2018. Travelled around a bit but my heart felt special in the Mount. It is such a magical place, I love the beach vibe and the spirituality that comes from the sacred Mauao.
After being stuck outside of New Zealand because of the travel restrictions of Covid19 in 2020, and forced back to live in Europe for 10 months, I realised how lucky I was to be in New Zealand with this quality of life.
So with my partner, we decided to become residents and to settle for good here because Life Is Better At The Mount!
You can often find me having a picnic on the beach, swimming in the ocean, walking up the Mount or enjoying a glass of wine with my friends.
I love a good chit chat so please come say hi :)
