Having traveled a wee bit for the last couple of years, on the way I met my British boyf (traveled for 6 odd months together) and this week I took the plunge and booked a one-way ticket to Bristol.
I'm a kiwi going on the working-holiday visa, so my question is relating work and living costs.
I am a uni graduate but will be looking for bar and hospitality type work that I have done in the past and I think it would be a good way to meet people. Does anyone know Bristol well enough to let me know how hard it will be in the recession-struck UK to find a job??
I'm quite worried financially. Although I will be living with my boyf while I am there until around June when we will head off to travel again, I don't want to be earning just to live - I'm hoping to be saving a wee bit for travels.
What is Bristol like?? (Never heard of any kiwis going there, everyone goes straight to London..)
My sister lives in London and a good friend in Manc so will be heading round England for a look when I can afford it, but I'm just wondering what people can tell me about living (not just visiting as a tourist) in Bristol?
