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


I may make some powerful enemies here, but I have to say that I liked some New Zealand wines better than some French ones. Marlborough and Hawkes bay makes amazing wines thanks to the huge amount of sun that they get every year. You will want a good glass of sav’ on the beach while watching the sunset.

Wine is also a big industry in New Zealand and a year round job source for backpackers. Picking is not the only seasons where farmers need help you know…
