This is what i have sorted out for a plan.

going to travel to NZ, getting a Working holiday visa before entering. I have been told by friends that the best thing to do is to get the kiwi experience bus travel, as the bus goes around the islands and it unlimited for a year. So was going to do that and stop off at each place for a amount of time and after I have done the entire route. I will go back to the place I liked the most and settle down for a bit with a job before I decide to travel again.

This is something I am doing alone currently but I'm hoping to find someone or people that would like to do the same.

So if anyone is serious about probably doing the same then get in touch, This is something i would very much like to happen.

I'm up for this. Be cool to get a few people together. I arrive in Auckland on 20th January.

I've looked at the kiwi bus travel and was thinking about doing the same. When are you thinking of going?

Well I'm hoping to go dec/jan time. If that is when you had hoped to go?

hey,
I've since looked closer at the Kiwi bus and I've heard mixed reviews. I've started looking at other company's like stray and magic and I think I might go with one of those instead.
Sorry to mess you about, and contact me if your thinking of going with either of those company's, because I'm still going around the same time.

I was thinking of maybe getting a camper van or something but need a few of us. I reckon it wouldn't cost much different to the buses once cost has been split and can go wherever we want. :)

Camper van sounds like a good idea, where you planning on going exactly?

I have no idea. Everywhere and anywhere. Get a map and point and go.

Campervan is a decent plan, get a few people and then will be able to do and go where we wanted.

I have created a facebook group and put us lot in it. Just add anyone that is thinking of doing the same. If anyone wants to join let us know and we can add you.
