Kia Ora, ようこそ, Wilkommen and Welcome to my New Zealand Blog!
I’m Benjamin from Germany but you can call me Benny, Ben or ベンチャン or whatever you feel like. 😉
In this Blog I am going to write a little bit about my Life in New Zealand and you can also have a look at some of my pictures.
Right now I’m in Germany but I’m flying to New Zealand tomorrow. Actually this will be my second time in New Zealand as I already spent one year there from April 2008 to April 2009.
I really enjoyed that time and had some great experience in New Zealand. The beautiful country, the “easy going” mentality and especially my girlfriend Naoko, who I met in Wellington, makes me now go again.
I hope you enjoy reading this Blog!
If you don’t know me, you might want to read a short summary who I am and what I have done before I started writing this Blog:
As mentioned before I’m from Germany and I graduated my studies of Business Administration with majors in Business Informatics and Financial Controlling in March 2008. I worked as a software and web developer for 16 months during my studies and started working as a Contractor in Germany in November 2007.
After I finished my studies I spent one year on a Working Holiday Scheme in New Zealand. At the beginning I had a language course in Wellington where I met my Japanese girlfriend 🙂
After 4 weeks there I worked as a Volunteer in Nydia Bay for two months. Then I did some IT jobs, like teaching Excel or developing a database, while living most of the time in Queenstown.
From the middle of April to the middle of October 2009 I worked in Germany as a software developer and now I am trying to find a job as a web and/or software developer in New Zealand.
