On November 7th I leave Sweden for an exciting year in New Zealand, where the plan is to work and travel across the country. This has been my dream for quite some time and after some hard work it’s finally coming true! Since I’ve never set foot in Kiwiland before, I’m super excited. The culture, climate, food, basically everything’s going to be new to me. Not to mention I’ll be speaking in a different language than my mother tongue for a year. Just wow!
With only my Deus and the Gold Monster as my travel buddies, it would be nice to meet up with some new friends. If there is anyone here that wouldn’t mind to take a 19 years old lad under his/her wing I would really appreciate it. Ever since I was a kid I’ve dreamed about digging gold for real (by “real” I mean digging with the right equipments and actually finding something ). But I reckon it’s kinda pointless to just go out there without any experience and expect to find gold…
My golden “Have To Try This List”
-sniping for gold
-nugget hunting with metal detector
-relic hunting with metal detector
Fishing is my second passion in life, besides metal detecting, so if there are any good fishing spots (I know that this can be a sensitiv question…), please let me know. I mostly do spinn fishing, both in fresh and salt water. All species are of interest
Also, if there is anyone who lives on a large property with a lot of farm work to be done, or just needs an extra hand at home I’m more than happy to help. I can do pretty much anything in change of accommodation. Cleaning, farm work, cooking etc. Just send me a private message and I’ll tell you more about myself
What I want to achieve with this journey is to gain experiences that last a lifetime, meet new interesting people and learn more about the Kiwi way of living. Improved skills in English and all the gold I will find (or not) are just bonuses. Therefore it would be so awesome if there actually was somebody who would respond to this. I really want to get the most out of this journey and an exchange, an opportunity to spend some time with locals, would mean everything to me.
Many thanks for taking your time reading this and happy hunting!
