RE: Long term Stay accomodation
New Zealand is a wonderful and interesting place. Well, most of it. The exception is Palmerston North where I was forced to spend a week recently. John Cleese (English comedian) suggested it would be a great place to go if you wanted to commit suicide!
You'll be with other students and will probably have a fat time. There are a couple of good places to eat and a cinema that shows out of date movies.
If you can possibly afford or arrange it, head to somewhere magnificent like Queenstown for a break. Or take a short flight to Brisbane or Sydney for the time of your life.
Travel Tips for Palmerston North
This is the best remaining remnant of the lowland forest that used to cover this area. Because it is so rare and precious and small it is closed to the public and you can only see it by appointment.
Because I am the Visiting Literary Artist at Massey I got an appointment, with some difficulty, and had a fascinating guided tour by a botanist. She was very passionate and knowledgeable and gave me so much material, I know I will get, as she suggested, at least one haiku out of the experience.
She suggested that the reason it was never logged was that there was a small spring in the middle of it. Even if the stream that flowed in at one end was dry, a stream always flowed out of the other end - so there must be a spring in it.
It is very beautiful and precious. And also hard to find. I had to get onto some knowledgeable locals to get me permission, to even find out who gave permission, and then we had to be met and shown where it was.
