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 that taste good


As a Backpacker you will sometime feel like you have to drink to be social enough. I mean every evening there is something happening in the hostel’s bar or in a bar nearby. Your roommates of the day or the random girl that you met that day will invite you to join them and their friend for a drink or two almost every evenings. It is great! But make sure to pace yourself, for your sake, and your budget too.

My tip: Always ask what size is the “house jug” as they can vary from 3 to 5 pints roughly.
