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
Coffee

Coffee

From interviews to date, everything happens in coffee shops in New Zealand. Stir away from the giant chains, especially the overseas ones, and stick to the cozy atmosphere of a privately owned coffee shop with a unique ambiance. You’ll find one at any street corner.

Kiwis are coffee savvy and they know their thing. I have never drunk coffee as smooth as the ones I got there and as often. Kiwis are also quite bubbly so except a conversation while waiting your drink.
