Wooo Paul's money should be coming any day now, so that's a relief! I phoned up O2 to cancel my contract....got to pay back nearly 300 quid ;(. I get to keep the phone though and they're going to send me a code so I can unlock it. 11 days to go EEEEK!

And beautiful like scotland! at least they have good spring and summer weather lol. The one downside to NZ for me against oz is that the wildlife doesnt seem to be as good but then again theres no snakes or other animals that might take a munch on you lol

Britchickx how much longer did you have on your contract? Also how much was it per month? I need to cancel my contract in the next couple of months and I am worried my fees are going to be high too.

Bell - i was 4 months into a 24 month contract with a blackberry phone :o knew i should never have got one. The contract without the bolt on and insurance is 15.50 a month.....so 15.50x20 is roughly 300 quid ;( at least they'll unlock the phone though.

 

Stacey - not sure at least 6 months though, gonna travel for 4 weeks ish, then settle in one place and try to get work, then in September we're gonna apply for the visa and hopefully it doesn't take too long, so we'll go soon after whenever the visa is granted!

I'm on a £39 contract (needed a new laptop that came with it) and will have about 8 months left on the contract which I guess then be about £300 too :(

 

I will be in Auckland from start of November, so if you find yourselves that way in November maybe met up for a drink. :)

Just for you :wubclub:

We went to NZ before coming to Aus, everyone raves about Milford Sound and it was amazing but we actually preferred Doubtful Sound. Check it out if you get the chance, it was absolutely one of the highlights of our trip. Stayed overnight on a boat and went kayaking, both terrifying and incredible!

 

The attached pic was taken from Wilmot Pass on the way to Doubtful Sound.....some hairy driving round them there parts!! take clean undies!!

We cruised down Milford, doubtful and Dusky Sounds in February ! It was beautiful but very wet and windy. Just seeing your photo brings it all back to me!
