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


After about a month of pasta, I decided to get something different but still cheap. I never really cooked rice before as I was not a big fan of it but I got myself a 500gr pack which turns out is a lot more food than 500gr of pasta and started cooking with it. I got myself a bit of curry powder to go with it and it really added variety to my meals without breaking my budget.
