Hey everyone! I'm a 28 year old female looking to go travelling alone at the end of the year (november time maybe) I actually really want to first do some volunteering work in Thailand with stray dogs as I have previous RSPCA work. After I then want to go to New Zealand and hopefully work there on a WHV. However, I'm so scared I will not find work, run out of money or feel lonely over there.To be honest, I am quite nervous about the trip as I'm quite a shy person, and as much as I want to meet new people I can get very nervous in bigger groups and don't want this to ruin my experience. I'm not too much of a party girl, but don't mind going out once and awhile, but prefer a quieter night!
I have traveled to Australia before on my own when I was younger, but I never made many friends to travel with as I found it hard to socalise. So traveled alone most of the time. I really want this trip to be different. I'm still single, no mortgage and stuck in a supermarket job and don't want to miss out on this opportunity!
I have probably made myself to sound like a total bore! But I really want to enjoy this trip and make memories! Has anyone had a similar experiences? Has anyone done any volunteer work? Also is it easy to get work in NZ? Any help would be so fantastic for me! Thanks Sarah :)

Hi there,
We're 2 girls going to New Zealand in October 2014, and looking for travel buddies to join in the road trip!
We'll be travelling from North island to South island, and doing a lot of adventurous stuff/adrenaline sports.

If you're still interested do let me know :)

Regards,

Hey! Are you still travelling in NZ?
I am a 27 years old guy (yeah today it's my b-day :) ) from Belgium and I am going to travel NZ. I will arrive in Auckland on October 26th and I want to travel first up north of Auckland (whangarei) to go diving the poor knights, see the bay of islands and road trip around the parks. On 30st I have to be back in Auckland.
I am wondering if someone has the same travel plans and interests so we could rent a car and have a awesome roadtrip!

Hope to catch up with some people :)
Greetz!
