Hey All,

Was wondering if anyone is planning to go to NZ to work and travel in the summer net year. I was planning on going for a year and in that time maybe going up to Oz, Fiji etc to. I'm currently thinking of going through Real Gap. Anyone?? A travel budie would make me a little less nervous about the whole thing. :)

hi there, yer i keep thinking on going to oz i was gonna see how much money i can get by new yr an go from there. donno what sort of amount people take with them been told bout 2,000 pound bout doesn't sound enough to me. i'd like to go to oz an new zealand and will work if i go. i was nthinking about a real gap, doing the out back one or one of the other companies but people on here ave told me ur better off with out them saving that extra bit of money. they say you meet people out there really easy thats the only thing that bothers me as i'll be going alone.

sounds cool. I was going to do the kiwi essentials trip through real gap. You need approx £1500 in an account when you arrive in NZ, apparently its the law because they don't want you to run out of money or something. Im saving now and working as much as i can, it something i think everyone should do. I've heard that you meet loads of people out there too which is great but i think i'd feel better if i was going with someone or a group of people.
