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


As a “travel diary” I decided to send myself a postcard from New Zealand every month, and I loved reading them back when I got home to remember all those little moments. I love New Zealand stamps! They are so much more fun that the ones that we have back home! I got myself a bunch of hobbit stamps just as a souvenir but got a few ones to send postcards home.

Fun fact: Send a postcard from Cape Reinga, on the top of New Zealand, and it will have a different Post stamp than anywhere else in New Zealand! Make sure to write your postcard and stick a stamp on it before posting it as the mailbox up there is only checked once a week, no post office there.
