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
L & P


Think Sprite but with much more lemons. L stands for Lemon and P stands for Paeroa, the city where it is made. Locals say that L&Pamp; tastes so good because the Paeroa water is one of the purest of the country.

Nobody really knows if this is true or not, but it keeps the legend alive. If you stop by Paeroa during your trip, look for the huge L&P bottle, one of the token tourist picture that you have to take during your trip here.

L&P is available in every convenience store (Dairy shop), Supermarkets, restaurant and fast food.
