Emigrant Guide - July 2015

Columns: 

New Zealand is a wonderful tourist destination. Kiwis are friendly, trustful and very helpful. Here are a few hits on how to reduce travel cost and have some things to eat when you are longing for food from home.

Accommodation:

If you are looking for free accommodation, you can use one of the following websites where nobody will charge you for a comfortable bed and food in exchange for 4 to 6 hours work each day.

Shopping:

If you want some favourite food products you may find them under the English names: buckwheat, cottage cheese and horseradish for example. However, if you want to find some- thing more specific I recommend Skazka in Newmarket, which offers Polish and Russian products such as pickled cu- cumbers, pearl barley or millet groats, white cottage and sweets. There address is

Entertainment:

If you want to experience a different kind of cinema I recom- mend the Bridgeway Cinema. Great architecture, welcoming service, non-commercial productions and the opportunity to watch the movie while holding a glass of wine. Their address is

Bridgeway Cinema, 122 Queen Street, Northcote Point, Auckland

Employment:

The most common job website is www.seek.co.nz which advertises many job offers. Good luck but be prepared it is not easy to find a job in New Zealand so you will need a good CV.
