Q. Hi Mike! I got your contact details from my friend Janne. He told that you are travelling freelancer programmer. I have been programming for 11 years and I have been thinking to start similar lifestyle than you and Janne. Have you enjoyed your life during the trip? Would you recommend travelling and working as a programmer? Where do you find your customers?

The Oldest Stone Building in New Zealand, Kerikeri Bay
Kerikeri is a backpackers best and worst nightmare about 3 hours north of Auckland. If you're travelling on a budget around the North Island, Kerikeri is definetely a place you can find work. The city, like most citys in New Zealand, is pretty small and basic. There's a local supermarket, a few shops and a Mcdonalds (of course!). Unless you have a car you cant really get to the outer edges to see what little else it has to offer....theres a chocolate factory, a few prehistoric buildings and you can check out Rewa's Village - the start of a bush trail. Finally, they've got Rainbow Falls waterfall, which is nice to look at, but nothing spectacular.
