I've not posted on here for like half a year! That's a joke! I couldn't go half a day without looking before!

I just wanna say thank you to everyone that gave advice to me when I decided to go traveling around NZ 6 months ago! I'm still here, settled in Queenstown! Finally.

Onto the important stuff! We have this, we got this! I'm so hyped! Top 3 is on! Got to treat burnley as if it was the best team in the world! Need to keep this run going! It's amazing what confidence can do huh?

We got this! Good to be settled! Great to be back on this! YNWA team

Cheers, Nelly

Hey team, just want to say thank you very much for your words! A big help, that's me arrived in New Zealand! What a wonderful place, my location is Takapuna at the moment, anyone around/near? Also, nearest Liverpool/sports pub? Thanks a lot

Nelly

1.) The weather is rubbish right now! You've come at a bad time!


2.) Haha, it was awesome yesterday, or the day before, this rain though. I'm here for a year, so it's all good

Hey team, not football, but would be thankful for a little bit of help.

On wednesday I move to New Zealand for a year or so on a working, holiday visa! is there anyone living there? any LFC supporter groups? to be honest, any advice would be greatly appreicated!

Thanks, Nelly.

Nelly

1.) Alrite mate,

I went to NZ on a working holiday visa back in 2007 so I have some experience of the place. First off I can say that it's a phenomenal country, aesthetically beautiful but, more importantly, incredibly friendly people. If you have any problems there will always be people about who are happy to help - so worry not!

In terms of work you can do 3 months agricultural stuff and get a years extension to your visa (if that's what you want) or you can opt for trying to get a standard job in the city, bar work, barista and the like (though you will need licenses to do them - which are easily attainable).

In terms of agriculture work there are a number of hotspots, Napier on the North Island is especially good, apple picking, vineyard work, etcetera and it's a really chilled out place too. If you are going to stay in hostels (and I assume you are) then AquaLodge in Napier is amazing, chilled out vibe, very friendly people and and if you contact Tony, the owner, he can arrange work for you before you even arrive.

On the South Island there is Blenheim and Nelson, similar types of work to Napier and similarly beautiful. You could also go to Queenstown, the famous ski resort, and work there (that will count toward the agriculture quota - weird I know). As I say you can find normal work in most towns and cities, just be prepared to move around a bit to find it. And also talk to fellow backpackers, they'll have good info to share which will help you find work. Also bear in mind that a lot of the agricultural work is seasonal so just do a bit of research/make phone calls before heading off someone for work.

As for tourist stuff I couldn't really recommend one particular place as the entire country is phenomenal. In the far north of the north island its climate is tropical and also has the famous 90mile beach. There are tons of places to go in the North Island, all spectacularly beautiful in their own way. The only place I would recommend to avoid is Palmerston North: John Cleese once said of the place that "if you were looking to commit suicide but perhaps lacked the courage then pay it a visit" or something to that effect. All I can say is that it is flat, boring and with nothing worthwhile to see - but that is the only place in NZ I could say that about.

As for the South Island well its just one spectacular place after another. Your only real problem will be trying to find the time to see everything. It's honestly spectacular mate you'll have a superb time.

Just a few other notes:

- there is a thing called WOOFing, it basically means you live on someones property (usually farmland or something) and get free rent, food, etc in exchange for working on it. It's a cool experience and a different way to get a feel for the place and the people.
- A British Drivers licence is perfectly valid over there. If you are buying a used car though get either a mechanic or somebody good with cars to have a good look at any vehicle your thinking about buying: I saw a few people buy absolute bangers unawares so just get it checked properly before handing over cash.
- Maori's are sound, really friendly engaging people. Just don't play rugby with them - I made the mistake of having a game of 2v2 on a lunch break with me French mate and these two 16 year old maori's. They smashed us. Even a light tackle felt like being hit by a bus.

Apart from that mate enjoy yourself, it's an amazing experience and an amazing country. In terms of the footy you'll find, as long as it ain't too late, that it's on in most pubs. Plenty of hostels get the ssn equivalent as well and, unlike over here, they will have all the games televised, so getting to watch us should be no bother. I remember bragging to mates how good we were as a team (because at the time we were!). The first game we watched together was Liverpool vs Marseille at Anfield, my French mate happened to be a raving Marseille fan. And wouldn't you know it we played like dogs and lost 1-0 to a wonder goal from valbuena, fun times. Also watched us lose to Milan in the 2nd CL final as well. not the happiest of football memories! But a superb experience.

If you have any questions mate just reply on here and i'll keep checking and try to get back to you. Enjoy the travels la, I wish I was going back!

10.) Nelly
Seano was pretty accurate
I was born there with a Scouse father and Kiwi mother and still have family and friends in NZ
Happy to help out a fellow red
I can put you in touch with many good people to help you out.
If eds give you my email address, get in touch


11.) 12 Sep 2014 18:32:04
Seano, that's absolutely brilliant advice mate, thanks a lot, it's appreciated a lot more than you think

Arrow, thanks as well, more people I know the better, eds, could you pass it on please, or pass mine on? Thanks a lot

Nelly

{Ed033's Note - ok Nelly

Mrs aaiiii and my good self are emigrating in November, there's a nz supporters club with a few branches! They organise venues to watch matches and all that.

I'm all over it like a fat bird on a bag of chips


13.) 12 Sep 2014 19:36:20
Arrow mate, forgot to reply to your email as have two job offers, one north island one south. Will mail you when we decide which one mate. Thanks for the mail


14.) No worries mate, glad to help - enjoy your travels!


15.) Allseeingaaiii
If given a choice I would go for the North Island.
Much warmer the further north you go.
South Island has beautiful scenery but quite a few of the locals in the small towns have eyes too close together and their parents are brother and sister.
If you've ever been to Wisbeech near Peterborough you'll know what I mean.


16.) The North island for the liveability, culture and climate. The South for the holidays - unbelievable scenery and insane sports. You will have a ball.

Imagine, Suarez, Sturridge, Sanchez, with a little bit of Sterling behind! I can only dream :'

Nelly

1.) On the football field or.?


2.) 02 Jul 2014 12:07:35
Of course NOT on the football field. He mentioned Suarez.


3.) Fair play haha, would be unreal though, in terms of football of course!


 

 

14 Apr 2014 19:27:05
Right, IF sturridge is not fit for a next few games, would anyone fancy bringing on Allen for Henderson, Lucas for Sturridge, then playing the diamond with Sterling up with Suarez?

Thanks a lot

Nelly

1.) 14 Apr 2014 19:55:54
I think playing 433 would suit Sterling and Lucas better, personally.


2.) We should recall borini. Not sure if that's possible, but it would be great to have options. If Suarez gets injured, we suddenly only has aspas.

{Ed002's Note - It is not going to happen.}


3.) I don't get why everyone is wanting borini back, he's scored a few goals at a struggling team this season and everyone thinks he's good enough to add depth to our squad. Sturbridge lit the league up at Bolton, borini has been average at best. I've not got anything against the lad but I just think there's better options and I'd rather cash in on him and aspas.


4.) Hope Borini gets a hat-trick on Wednesday.


5.) I think this is a big test on the future of Iago Aspas, if he does not replace Daniel Sturridge then he will be gone and we will find a player who can cover and compete with the SAS.

Well he's good man, first team, not yet, definitely could make a difference, we shall see if he comes!

I kind of agree Jessie, but who do you mean, in terms of CM? And young, 18 young, I believe he would be a great signing, he can make a difference, works hard

Thanks

Nelly
