Wivian Malmstrom Buckrell

In 1981, I was posted as secretary to the Swedish Embassy in Wellington. After marrying New Zealander, Paul, I continued working totally 25 years for Sweden here. Then I worked ten years as the Personal Assistant to the Ambassador at the Swiss Embassy.

Before I joined Foreign Affairs, I worked many years as a tour guide in Europe and Great Britain.

Since I retired from the diplomatic circle in Wellington, I have worked as a tour leader/guide in Australia, New Zealand and the Cook Islands for the Swedish high-end tour operator, Flygmaklarna. When I am not working for them, I am happy to take other tour guide jobs.

Swedish and English are my best languages. However, I do speak French, German, Italian and Spanish as well.

More than 35 years living in New Zealand, has given me a natural in-depth knowledge of all aspects of life here; New Zealand society, politics, traditions, culture, economy, just to name a few.

My style of guiding is traditional. Apart from my professionalism, I am known for my sense of humour, caring nature, efficiency and diplomacy.
