hi there,
i want to know when is the best time to go to NZ on a WHZ to coincide with the fruit picking season? i dont have any relatives in NZ, so i am going there alone to find a job in the farms....

NZ is suffering a recession too and work is not easy to get there at present. Several weeks ago, the Daily Mail had a story that British (and other foreign) workers were being kicked out of jobs to make way for Kiwis returning home, looking for jobs. Make sure you have a job to go to, or don't rely on the money you would get from one.

the whole world is suffering from recession, but does this ever stop WorkingHolidaymakers from going to other countries? i think not!

it is true, work is scarce everwhere, but there will be jobs that other people would shy away from....

youngsters from all over the world who dream of travelling and seeing the world wont think, 'this year is bad, recession, i think i will postpone my plans till it gets better'. the question is, when will it get better? another 3 or 4 years? by that time, the youngster wont have the will to travel....

we must travel and face the hardships that come with it....

thanks for the warning anyway
