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.

Websites and other things
Backpacker Guide

Before leaving New Zealand I found all the tips I could ever want to help me prepare my trip and while in New Zealand I use their “NZ Guides” and other activities and accommodation guide to plan my trip. I also found a job on it by using their job listing. I mean the website is so thorough that I could never dream building such a massive base of info. Another think that I liked about it too is that it worked perfectly on my phone too, so many New Zealand website still have no responsive designs which makes them almost unusable on mobile devices :(

After about 2 weeks in New Zealand using BackpackerGuide.NZ I got rid of my Lonely Planet guide.
