Hi everyone

I plan to start travelling in Jan 09, starting in Thailand, Malaysia & Singapore, before settling down to work in Melbourne & Sydeny to make some money!

My problem is, we will be back to travelling by the time xmas and ny comes around and don't know where is best to settle for that time. We should be in NZ at this point, so any ideas pointers on the best places to be and stay? I imagine things might be a bit more expensive at this time? We are happy to join in the fun at a hostel or wherever really!!

Thanks in advance.

Staying in new zealand for this time will be really nice, its usually really warm for christmas and alot of people spend it at the beach, so you wont be out of place if you are there on the day! And youl definately meet people.
If you like the beach sort of scene perhaps try raglan? or gisborne (east coast north island) is also really nice.
Feel free to private message me if you want any info about new zealand, i am a kiwi so should be able to help!
