Hi e'one. 28 yr old irish lad heading over to Nz ( Via Tahiland, Koh Samui), landing in Auckland on the 1st Nov, no plans as of yet. I have a WHV for the 12 months. Hoping to enjoy life to the full and do as many activities as possible. Havent yet deceided on whether to travel with a tour company or buy a camper van. Can't wait to get out there, have only been biten with the travel bug now, a bit nervous, but i suppose its all part of the experiance. Anyone is the same position ?

Hi William...where are you from, how old are you? ... I'm 29 from San Diego, USA. I'll be in NZ North Island from Sept 17 (late) to Sept 24 (late). I'll be renting a car in Auckland and traveling north to the Bay of Islands and Poor Knights Islands (best SCUBA diving) and south to Waitomo (black water rafting) and Rotorua. Of course I'm flexible and may change Bay of Islands or Rotorua, the other 2 I'm definitely going to.

Possibly we can meet up and split the car costs.

Later, Barry
