I am a 28 year old female wishing to travel to NZ for about 6 months. I am aware of the working holiday programs that I am still eligible for, but are they a necessity? I am a bit weary of committing to a job before I know where I am actually wanting to go; and I am a fly by the seat of my pants kind of girl. Is it possible to reach NZ sans a work permit and either apply for one once there, or find jobs "under-the-table?"
Also, I have been doing loads of research, but any recommendations of places to visit or stay for a few months would be greatly appreciated. I am quite into remote areas and those that are less touristy!
If it makes any difference with the visa question, I am from the US.
Thanks in advance for any help!
