Christchurch, New Zealand
Green Lane, Pennsylvania
I think my waiting game will be a lot more peaceful after my Visa is graunted.
The amount of things you have to take is insane, plus our only appointment venue is in Auck so I have to make a special flight there just for the interview.
Purchased a suitcase yesterday. I am thinking I will only try and half fill it on the way there as I know I will buy things in the US and I dont want to come back heaps over weight
I now have flights/medical insurance/baggage insurance all sorted. So guess thats a weight off.
I have left a month to travel after camp, Im guessing a lot of others would have done the same... But considering I am on the other side of the world I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what is worth seeing in America?
Hi there Guys,
Im Jo an 18yr old female from Christchurch, New Zealand.
Last year while studying Social Work, I got the sudden urge of wanting to travel.
But I didnt just want to fly to the other side of the world by my lone self and get lost :S
So my application for CA started there I love children and love getting involved so thought hey why not?
Months of waiting past and I finished my studies and found a job and moved into a flat in town with two friends=life was good
However these recent earthquakes managed to totally destroy our flat and my work crumbled around me on Feb 22nd in the second large earthquake I am really lucky to be alive. Such a scary sight, people running around bleeding and lifeless bodies left sprrawled out on the pavement. I dont mean to scare just to paint a picture of what life was like for me over the past 6/7months.
Then the E-mail came, I had been placed and its as though a ray of light entered my life and I have been excited since. Im going to Camp Green Lane, CA. Which is a jewish camp. Im not religious myslef, but don't have a problem with it at all.
So now I am busy sorting out Visa interviews, flights, insurance and other things. I depart NZ on June 16th. So a just a little over two months now
As for now I am off to buy a suitcase. have a great day
