Hi,
I bought my ticket yesterday for my trip around the world. The plan includes a stop in New Zealand for 2 months for the ski season. I have applied for my work visa and am now just looking for some advice.
Ok firstly, is it worth looking for a flatshare for two months - if so whats the easiest way to do this and what kind of prices am I looking at per week? (I am looking to stay in Queenstown)
Also work wise... is bar work easily found, or possibly work on the mountains apparently includes ski passes... is this easily accessible when you first get out there...and how bad is the rate of pay!!!???
Questions, Questions, Questions......Just really would love the opinion of someone who has actually been there and done it all!
