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.

Those random things
Ferries

Ferries

Aside from the obvious North Island to South island route, New Zealand has a huge amount of ferry. In the Bay Of Island you will have to take a ferry to reach towns or nearby islands, in Auckland, the best way to explore the hauraki gulf is to take a ferry to neighboring volcanoes. Exploring the Marlborough Sounds is done by ferry only and the 8th wonder of the world, Milford Sound is running ferry cruises every 30 minutes.

Kiwis lives on water and master it like nobody. I have spend some of my best dollars in New Zealand on short ferry cruises, so go on, get on the water, you’ll reach places that you never even thought existed!
