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.

Plastic bags

Plastic bags

I can’t begin to stress how handy those simple things come. First of, in some supermarkets in the country, you will have to pay a few cents for plastic bags, so when you go shopping, bring your own. Throwing them away is a huge wage of resources and may kill beautiful turtles that will take them for jelly-fishes and try to eat them.

I had a great system in my backpack, placing all my underwear in a bag, my tees in another, my socks in a third one and so on. It made my stuffs much easier to access when I was changing real quick before catching a bus. No need to turn on the light and wake up the whole dorm.
