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.

Sunscreen

New Zealand is located right under the hole in the Ozone cause by human pollution. As a result, there is no protection between our skin and the UV of the SUN. In fact, on average, an unprotected skin in New Zealand will burn within only 15 minutes of exposure!

To avoid melanoma (Skin cancer) make sure to apply regularly a SPF 15 to 30 minimum. The sun is no joke down here!
