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


There is 2 schools of thought about travelling with a laptop. Some like it, some don’t. Those who don’t will go to cyber café and spend between $2 to $4/h to use their computers and internet.

Those who will take their laptop with them on the other hand will spend countless hours trying to connect to painfully slow “free WiFi” that aren’t free. Internet in New Zealand is a loose/loose situation. However I liked having my own laptop with me as I allowed me to save my pictures on it and I could edit my CV very easily if I compare with those with tablets that struggled and ended up borrowing my laptop. Last point in favor of having your own laptop: Keep your favourite shows on it!!!
