My student visa for Australia was set to expire March 15, 2012. Since I was no longer studying, I was pretty much told to get out of the country. Therefore, I decided to leave but instead come back to Australia on a work visa so I could continue working while pursuing a PhD option at Bond University. In order to apply for a work visa, I had to exit the Australia immigration system aka leave the country. I decided to head to New Zealand as I have never been and it was a short 3 hour ride from the Gold Coast.
Hope you enjoy my blog on New Zealand!
