12 months in New Zealand
"Now I know people from all over the world!"
Going to New Zealand was a great experience! My self confidence, and english speaking ability has improved a lot. And, now I know people from all over the world!
I worked on a cropping farm, and my main task was tractor driving. It was an interesting farm with lots of possibility to get more responsibility. For most trainees I think my farm would be a good placement, but I would say that knowledge about tractors is necessary.
I had a car from my workplace that I could use for work and for private use. I travelled the South Island for two weeks in January, spent one week in Queenstown in June, and spend one week on the North Island in July.
I recommend people to travel and see Queenstown, the glow worm caves, the glaciers, Rotorua, and Mount Hutt : ) Also, go river rafting and hot air ballooning in Methven!
