I have booked a hostel for my first 2 weeks in New Zealand, I'll be staying at Ponsonby Backpackers in Auckland. The staff were very friendly in their emails, the place looks comfy with an outdoor area for barbecues (still find it odd that I'll be arriving in mid-summer!) and there is a female dorm. Lots of hostels only have mixed dorms and I'm just too old to hang with the 20 year old party boys and girls!! My thoughts of course may change once I'm there and I may feel like being a 20 something again!
Whilst I'm at the hostel I will set up a bank account, tax number and then the job hunt will begin! I'm definitely sorted for Auckland but where will I go from there?! So many places but I suppose I have 2 years, plenty of time!
I am also selling all my belongings, I have spent more time on ebay in the last few weeks than I have doing anything else I think! I'm also going to sell the (very) few bits of furniture I have collected. So, UK friends, when (if) I come back, I shall be looking for any charitable or cheap donations available!
