Yeah I agree with you, as I believe travelling with others will make finding a place to stay be a lot more easier and bearable.
Are you planning just to travel?
When I go in December time I am going to get a working visa and stay out working for a year

Hi guys,

Totally agree with this travelling with others is fun, sure everyone will be heading down east coast at some point.

Tom when are you heading off early or end of December?

I'm doing the same with the working visa.

Hey Nat,

I am hoping to leave at the start of the December and go straight to Christchurch.

A friend of mine has given me some tips on getting work and where to stay. So I have an idea of what I need to do.

When are you planning to head out?

Ah right that sounds good.

I'm heading to Australia end of Dec around 29th.
