    I'm a teacher (of mathematics) just turned fifty. After holidaying in Britain for many years (Kent, Devon, Cornwall) we started travelling abroad in the mid 1990s. We emigrated to New Zealand in the mid 2000s and since then, backpacking has been the favoured style of travel - the cheaper it is, the longer you can be away for!

I have lived and worked in Auckland since emigrating from the UK over twelve years ago. I am the proud owner of a New Zealand passport (although I still have my British one too) and I've been through the whole immigration thing - work visa, medical, NZQA accreditation, permanent residency, citizenship. I know the Auckland area very well and I have toured the North Island visiting most tourist places (and many non-tourist places too). I can't say the same about the South Island - I've been to Nelson for a few days!
