Hey there,

Just wanted some last bits of advice before I embark on my first solo backpacking experience to NZ (EXCITED!!!)

I've got a 12 month working holiday visa and will have about £4500, plus £1000 on my credit card and my first 4 nights accom, insurance, visa, and kiwi experience bus pass all been paid for. Is there anything else that I'm missing? Also, I am thinking of getting an internal flight down to queenstown from Auckland, once I get over the jetlag, as I have read it is the perfect time to ski there.

If anybody has done a WHV in New Zealand, or are currently there at the moment, or will be in Auckland or Queenstown while I am there, then please get in touch. Would be great to speak to people in the same boat because, unfortunately, most people go to Australia on this forum :(
