Hi! My name is Kayur. I just finished my PhD at the University of Washington (Seattle, United States). I just finished school, and I'm looking for a break before I start work in New York City. I'm taking 2 months off and want to spend it in one place. Wellington seems ideal.
The point of this trip is to refocus on parts of my life I've ignored. I've recently fallen in love with circus, especially aerial acrobatics. I plan to study with folks in New Zealand who have similar passions. I hope to spend more time reading, meeting people, feeling like I understand the city of Wellington. Perhaps, I can't do that in two months, but it doesn't hurt to try.
I should be arriving in Wellington in early October (around the 3rd) and I'll be leaving in early Dec (around the 6th). If these times seem reasonable to you please let me know.
I love sharing stories and listening to people. If those conversations are over a meal or a drink or a walk through town all the better. I'd love to meet you even if I don't get to stay with you.
Hope to see around in Welly. I will arrive a week before you and intend on spending the next 6 months here. I lived in Seattle for a year and a half before leaving in March of this year. I think you will like Wellington a lot, it has many similarities with Washington state.
definitely shoot me a message when you get here
