I know somebody who is working in Antartica. He goes down there for the summer and then they drop him off in Wellington when it's over. He bummed around NZ for several months. He liked it quite a bit.
Oh it will be worth it when I get there. Haven't seen my boyfriend in about 12 weeks which is far too long!
You can go either way from London as it's pretty much totally the other side of the world. BA fly eastwards via Sydney but Air NZ is cheaper (due probably to the fact they're useless and totally unreliable) and they fly via Los Angeles.
But it is a lovely country when you manage to get there. I wouldn't choose to live anywhere else!
