Right so here's my questions.
Have any of you backpacked around new Zealand?
I am very keen to do it myself as new zealand has been a place i have always wanted to travel. So i am just starting out on on the planning of backpacking the country.
however, i'm not really to sure on where to start. My plan is to fly out and spend upto a year out there. i know i will need a visa/working visa but i plan to hike and tent for part of the time, while also staying in hostels and later renting a place in auckland after traveling and getting a job.
I totally have no idea where to start with planning so if anyone has done anything like this and can give any valuable advice please im all ears.
