    Phil and I are from Indooroopilly, we are both 21 and are in our last year of Uni. I heard it will be cold. My mum found some good bargains at ALDI, i managed to buy (for myself and my partner) snowboots, snow pants, snow jackets, and gloves all for $300. There actually not that bad. (for Aldi that is). Where are you from? Do you know of nay other people going on this tour? Are you going to do any extra things while in NZ, like bungee jumping, white water rafting, glow worms, luge, skiing??
