I remember arriving in Auckland, looking out of the airplane window and seeing the beautiful land of New Zealand for the first time. I remember the first time I was hosted, then buying a car, getting a job and starting to find my way around New Zealand. It’s been a year since I landed in New Zealand. Little did I know what was to come; a global pandemic, forcing thousands of Israeli travellers to return to their home country and leave the paradise New Zealand and Australia have to offer. I, however, decided to stay put and let the pandemic pan out. I’ve been living here in New Zealand for about a year, and I am now looking forward to my next adventure either in Australia, taking a flight to Israel, or getting my hands dirty working on a hearty farm. Wherever you are right now, here are some options for other travellers looking to come and travel here that may be helpful, and which ones are actually realistic.
