Who is behind Venture Out?

Passionate adventurer
Bernard is a real Kiwi, who loves the outdoors and sports. Often you see him on the local mountain bike trails on his eBike or kayaking on the Waikato River and Lake Taupo. He also enjoys photography and motorbike adventures – on and off road. In 1972 Bernard accompanied the New Zealand Kayak team to the Munich Olympics and lived in Europe for some time. In New Zealand he called Palmerston North, Napier, New Plymouth and Taupo his home. Knowledgeable navigator
Taju, originally from Germany, has lived in New Zealand since 2005. She is a travel professional with over 20 years of background in the tourism industry. While she traveled the world she fell in love with New Zealand. Today she is still crazy about all things that her new home has to offer. She loves planning trips around New Zealand to discover hidden places. Taju knows New Zealand like a local, because she has lived, studied and worked in different regions: Fox Glacier, Christchurch, Queenstown, Nelson, Wellington and Taupo.
