If you can’t find a flat to live in – look for a girlfriend instead.

This was the tactic English lad Simon Carroll tried after struggling to find a place to live in Queenstown.

Carroll, 22, posted on the “For rent in Queenstown” page on Facebook looking for a girlfriend who had her own place.

The tactic reaped rewards – he found a place, though not a girlfriend.
