The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Hello everyone. I would like to plan a trip to New Zealand but I have no clue were to start. As of right now I am looking to go solo. I don't have a ton of money so I am also trying to keep it cheap. Finally I am looking to spend a week and a half to 2 weeks in New Zealand.
First off does anyone have any experience getting a visa for New Zealand? If I could get some tips to make the process easier, that would help me a lot. Also, from my initial research I should have no problem getting a car considering I have a valid drivers license but if you have any advice on this, please tell me.
Next regarding money, I don't know were I would be staying but considering my budget is low I won't be staying in any 5 star hotels or anything. So if you know of cheap places to stay then please give me their names / locations and if you have it approximate price per day. Since I will most likely be getting a car, what should I expect to pay to rent one? What is the average fuel cost in NZ? What should I expect to pay for a meal? Again I am not going to be eating in some fancy place but I also don't want to stuff myself with fast food for 2 weeks.
I enjoy nature in general so hiking, kayaking, cave exploration, those types of things are what I am looking to do. So if you know of places that you would recommend then please tell me so I can read up on them.
Any museums that I may be interested in? I don't want to spend the entire vacation doing physical labor so a day or two spent looking at cities would be nice. If you have any recommendations on places to visit then that would also help.
Well I think that is about it. If you have any advice in general about planning a trip I would love to have it as this is the fist time I will be planning such a trip. Thanks again.
