I checked the New Zealand immigration website today and found out that my Working Holiday Visa has just been approved!!! Hooray!!! Again, another box to tick off the list. Now all I have to worry about now is:
Granted those ARE the 3 most expensive and important parts of my trip planning, but parts that are essential nonetheless. If worse comes to worse, I can always go without having a new laptop, but man, would that suck. It all depends on if I get the loan anyway. However the cool thing is, as far as proof of funds goes, credit cards count for that. I mean, I would use that as a last resort but it's nice to know I have my options. I'm gonna go for a loan around 5 grand. I think that would be good for getting my laptop and my flight. And I also just received my federal tax return which is around a grand so that will help out big time. I plan on going for this loan in about a month. Give me some time to pay off a bit more on my credit card. Every little bit helps!!!
I have such a good feeling about all this. That feeling that makes you go "Wow, I'm really going to do this!!!" I never thought that I would go and live in another country by myself for a year. What a trip. Literally.
