I'm Julia and 21, just graduated college and traveling for a year! My plans have recently changed and now I am looking to go to NZ in early January, and then go to Oz after. I'm looking to stay for about 2-3 months in each. Is anyone else backpacking around NZ in January? I'm a first timer and would love some company. Planning on staying in hostels/working along the way if possible. Any advice would be amazing! Very excited!!
