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 day without rain in New Zealand is pretty rare, summer on the North Island aside. In fact, it is often said that there are 4 seasons in one day in New Zealand.

Expect some quick showers now and then. But don’t let it stop you from hiking the trail that you planned to the day before. Just pack a raincoat to put on for 30 minutes and go on with your hike. You’re not made of sugar are you?
