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

Cell phone

The cell phone that I brought from home did not work on New Zealand network so I had to get a new one. Working Holiday Starter hooked me up with a good quality used one for a few bucks so it was great. It was relatively cheap, and I could use my limited data a few apps (Check out Viber / Whatsapp) to keep in touch with home. Although the coverage is not perfect all around the country but what can you ask to a small country like New Zealand.
