I’m proud to announce the arrival of my new New Zealand Backpacing Guidebook : New Zealand Backpacking Unwrapped. As of December 2012 this book is available exclusively on Amazon – fully updated for 2013!!!
The guide is over 125 pages of quality information which I’m sure will help you during your next visit to New Zealand. Although the ebook is aimed at backpacking in New Zealand, there is a lot of information there for both long term visitors, and new residents in New Zealand. It will be perfect for you if you have a working holiday visa for New Zealand and are wondering what lies head.
I’ve spent weeks making sure that the information in this guide book is correct and relevant for backpackers, which is why this blog has suffered a bit over the last few weeks.
Due to me neglecting this blog a bit whilse writing the ebook I am happy to give the readers of this site a discount of 15%. If you head on over to the checkout and enter the code of ‘nzunwrappedblog’, and apply the discount to your shopping cart, you’ll get a reduction. Don’t forget to update your cart before checking out!
