I'm going in either jan or feb to work and travel round the islands. Will be there for about 6 months-ish. Is anyone else going around that time as I'm a bit scared of going by myself!

well i think it looks more like mid feb that i'll be going as I want to leave enough time for the work visa to come through. But if anyone else is going to go or be there for feb then let me know!

Hi Becky,

I will be arriving in New Zealand in December and looking for someone to travel around with. I pretty much have the month of December planned out but not sure what my plans are going to be after the new year. I am 28yr old female from Alaska, easygoing and lots of fun to party with. I am also interested in camping, hiking, and some adventure activities. Would like to maybe get a couple of other people together and rent a camper. Let me know if you are interested and we can keep in touch.

Hi Becky,

I should still be in NZ when you arrive. I'll be in Auckland for xmas then moving up to Waiheke Island to work for a while - plan to stay there for a couple of months so will probaly still be on Waiheke in February. Get in touch nearer the time and we can meet up if you like.

Iwould love to join you guys but have no idea what kind of weather is in New Zealand in January. Also Becky ? Are you going through the Bunac program?> I have really been thinking about doing that.

thanks everyone for replying to my message! Still debating whether I should go or not. Ppl I've spoken to say that I really need a car over there if I want to see some of the sites that are 'off the beaten track' and I cant drive which causes some problems! still deciding also whether I want to go through Bunac or arrange everything myself....If anyone has any advice for me which is better then let me know!!
