Adrian from Switzerland
5 months in New Zealand
I had a great host family. My main tasks on the farm were baling, fixing machinery, and moving bales. It is another way in New Zealand to farm, compared to Switzerland.
I bought a car, and I spent a lot of time with other trainees. I travelled for 16 days before I started my work placement. I also took two weeks to travel during my work placement, and another 12 days after I was finished. I recommend people to go visit Queenstown, Lake Taupo, Castle Hill, and to go and see a Rugby match! I met a lot of lovely guys in New Zealand! Just awesome!
Also, I recommend trying bungee jumping, jet boating, sky diving, and going on hikes to see New Zealand nature like volcanoes.
