Hi all.

I'm hoping to go to New Zealand for 4-5 weeks during the summer as I have some time off between changing jobs. Would love to travel around the whole country, maybe hire a car or campervan and do it that way. At the moment, I'm planning on doing the trip alone although would prefer to travel or meet up with other people if anyone else has a similar plan?

Has anyone else (particularly females) travelled in NZ on their own? How was it in terms of safety/socialising/travelling around on your own? Everyone I know who's been says they think I'd be fine doing it alone but they were all in with other people so can't say first hand.

A bit about me.......I'm a 23 year old healthcare professional, based in Bristol. Have always wanted to head to NZ and hahve decided to grab the oppurtunity whilst I can. Would love to have some company on my trip as I'm a sociable person, and hope to do some winter sports out there, as well as hiiking and general exploring.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated :)
