Travel Resources

Meet all those little things that made my trip.

Along my trip through New Zealand I used a lot of what I call “Travel Resources”. It can be everyday items, websites or books... things that I interacted with regularly or not and that helped me during my trip. It is a bit of a free for all, if I think of something, I’ll put it here.

The goal is to give you my take on each of them and give you an unusually insight on a working holiday visa experience in New Zealand. You of course will not need to use all those or may use different ones but knowing what you will encounter may be helpful.

Things in my bag


A good part of the Step 7 of my guide is dedicated to choosing the right backpack with some links to articles on the subject. Therefore I will take this place here to tell you how to organize your backpack.

First, make sure to have enough plastic bags, I always fin that placing all your undersares in one bag, all your tees in another etc… makes your backpack much easier to use.

You will also have to try to place the heaviest items at the bottom and closer to your back, it will make it much easier to carry that way. Don’t forget to place the useful items like passport or bottle, easily accessible.

Finally, have fun with it and make it your own, a classic is to add flags of all the countries that you visited, but others ask people to sign it or pins from each town they stayed it. A personal backpack is a great souvenir!
