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.

Hiking boots

Hiking boots

New Zealand is the perfect country for any hiker. In fact, the most beautiful sceneries are accessible only after a few hours hike. Investing in insanely good hiking boots is a must before visiting Middle Earth. Make sure that they are as sturdy and comfortable as possible or you will regret it. You will use them often!

In fact I do believe that the most memorable moment of my trip was not a $100 rafting trip of $200 bungy jump, but a nice free 6 hours hike to overlook a lake, a peninsula, a volcano or a forest.

There is nothing more satisfying at the end of the day than a very dirty pair of hiking boots!
