Nothing is conifrmed yet, but I am considering flying from the U.K to Auckland around Sept/Oct. I am 23, from Somerset. I used to work on cruise ships (P&O UK and P&O Oz) and now I am back home, I really miss being away!!!

I don't really have a fixed plan in place as I just want to go with the flow a bit! I was thinking of working in Nz for a few months, before heading over to Oz (maybe working) and then onto Asia. I have a few friends from ships in Nz, Oz and the Philippines so I will have people to meet up with, however I am a little nervous about the thought of going it alone, and wondered if there would be anyone else that would be interested in/or is already going on this sort of adventure!?

Let me know. Like I said, nothing is confirmed, so I can be quite flexible with dates!! :)

Hi James,

I will go to NZ on my own for working holiday also. I will head to Auckland on next week. Maybe we can meet up on some stage when we are in NZ and do some activities together. Cheers. :)
