Hi guys I'm totally new to the site (and to travelling) and I just wanted to say hi!
I'm going with a gap year company to New Zealand this October (for 10 months!!!), stopping in Hong Kong for 3 days on the way and however long I want in LA on the way back.

I was just wondering if anyone is doing a similar trip, has done a similar trip, will be in these places at roughly the same time or lives in these places?

It's my first time travelling and I will be on my own but as I'm going with a company I will be going on a 'group flight' so I hopefully I get on well with those people!

Anyhoo, I just wanted to say hi and meet some fellow travellers!

Oops, I forgot to mention...I'm Steph, I'm 18 and from England! :)

Hi Steph,

Let me say you should enjoy your visit and stay in NZ. I was born there, but now reside in Australia. While the two main islands compliment themselves, it's the South Island that excells in the scenery. Bringing your english pound will also help u 2. :) If you have the time hop over to Stewart Island, that's like Fiordland, another worlderness.

Anyway, here's for good and safe travelling, all the best.

The Sanman.
