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


I do not know of anybody that bought a map of New Zealand. There are so many free ones, and each iSite will give away regional or city maps to who asks for it.

My favourite maps of New Zealand are the free ones made by the AA. You can find them in almost every iSite if they are not out of stock and in many hostels. They include every roads sealed and unsealed which makes travel through NZ a breeze.
