Ohhh Queenstown, it must be a city sent from heaven. It is like the city/town is made for me, with the landscape charms similar to my home country Norway, and busy feel of England means that I love it! The only thing it is missing is my family and friends of cause. It is still warm here considering its coming to winter season. However, this warm weather seem more like a curse rather than a blessing for Queenstown, as the lack of snow (or shall I say no snow) is delaying the opening of ski resorts and so on. This means less tourism, which puts pressure on businesses and all the arrivals to town who are out looking for work (like me). I swear I have never written this many C.V’s and cover letters before. There are over 100 people applying for the one job, it is insane. It is like I want to scream: ‘JUST GIVE ME THE JOB!’, but of cause I am not going to do that, that is not professional at all.  On top of all of this New Zealand has been hit by the ash-cloud from an Chilean volcano, which means a lot of flights have been stopped from here and Australia. It really opens my eyes to how different NZ handle these crisis. I have to say that I believe New Zealand handle it much better than how the other countries I have lived in would have, it must be the peoples personality. But this is only in my opinion.

However, this is not to say that I am having a bad time. I enjoy getting to know Queenstown and the lovely people who live here. I have a great apartment, the coolest car and the best boyfriend in the world. When thinking of all those people who where once again hit by a massive earthquake in Christchurch, it really puts things into perspective.

So I just keep on doing a snow-dance and hope the snow will soon make its appearance.
