Make your way across the pond

Working holidays take all the best bits of travel and add even more of the good stuff. Travelling is a priceless experience but it's no secret that accommodation, food, transport, shopping and sight-seeing can all put pressure on your hip pocket. There's no need to sacrifice your dreams of adventures abroad because of budget limitations – working holidays are a great way earn your keep and explore exciting new surrounds at your own pace. Living and working in the United Kingdom is especially good for young New Zealander's as New Zealand culture is a branch off the Brits. No language barrier is a big plus for reserved travellers but there are still plenty of local eccentricities that will make your trip unique.
