Hi, I plan to to travel to new zealand to work for a while in december 2011 ( i understand this is the fruit picking season?).
I would like to travel by land as this is my first time travelling, i hope it'll give me a feel for "the road" and some experiences to remember along the way, my starting point is the uk and im currently saving for my trip but need to work out a rough target, ive read that the final leg from asia to australia is the hardest and i was thinking of doing this by a freight? ( is this the best way?) and doing the rest by train/bus through europe into russia then onto china, sigapore.
any help would be appreciated on this one, am i going in the right direction? or biting off more than i can chew, i obviously understand ill need visa's and things but my plans are very much in there early stages. anyone done this journey before i hear its a popular one? costs? things to see along the way?
