From the U.S, after working for 6 months on setting my mother up so she can financially be secure in her apartment & finishing that task, I have now been thinking of just taking off some where warm like New Zealand, to test the waters for 6 months -1 year. I figure I'd have roughly 1,100 U.S dollars by the end of this month. Anyway a guy can successfully move to New Zealand with $1,100, get set up in a cheap apartment, job etc? I'd figure I could get cheap airfare that would cost me around $200-$300. Not sure how Visa's work. Not sure how much a studio apartment or flat cost there either. Is it hard to find work in New Zealand? Would it be easier just to head to Australia?
