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.

Recycling bin

New Zealand is big on recycling, in fact, it is one of the cleanest country I have ever seen. Even in Auckland, the biggest city, the streets are spotless. Because you will want to keep it green, make sure to recycle your rubbish.

Street bins usually have 2 slots: general rubbish and recycling. Many bins are placed at the entrance en the most popular hikes, used them and if they have a protecting lid, close it after yourself so it does not attract pests.

On the recycling side, place: Plastic, Glass and cans.

On the general waste side: Everything else.
