So I’m here in New Zealand for a year!! I know it’s crazy, but that is me .
There are alot of reasons I decided to go to New Zealand, one I have just recently graduated and I really wanted to travel but not vacation. And therefore I need to be able to provide myself with some income to fund my travels.
So, the program I registered with to obtain my Working Holiday Visa is SWAP. That is the Canadian version, however, if you live in different countries there are multiple other programs to go through. A popular one for UK and USA residence is BUNAC. Here is New Zealand, it is called the IEP. One, if you are thinking of doing an overseas working holiday program, by yourself, seriously consider going through a program, they have been absolutely wonderful and helpful to me. AKA, they are also the reason I can upload my videos! (Because internet costs ALOT here!)
So, I am VERY excited to be starting this new part of my life, and to be able to share it will all of you will be just as exciting. However, I am a bit worried about what will become of this blog. See, this is my main portal for all my online work that I do, however, I want this to be my travel blog as well! So, I was thinking should I maybe make a separate travel section of my blog? Or should I just keep everything on here?
I was also temporally thinking of giving this URL a different redirect with a fancy smancy blog name. LOL, but I dunno what that would be yet. So give me some ideas!!!
Anyways, here are some photos from my first few days of being here!! These are from the Sky Tower in Auckland!
The wonderful thing about the program I am going through is that not only have then been helping me with getting all the bank info and tax stuff setup, they also organize trips in conjunction with STRAY which is a travel bus company down here, and with a local hostel called Nomads. So I enjoy a couple day trips with them one being a beach BBQ at a local beach here in Auckland, called Mission Bay.
The other being a day trip to Bethelles Beach, and to this wonderful waterfall.

Yes, I am THAT white!! LOL .
Anyways!! I got tons of more pics and hopefully videos coming your way soon, it all depends on where and when I can get the internet to work :/
TTYL! <3 Nadine
