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.

Not always 100% accurate…

…but get the job done! I used my phone in lieu of a GPS for much of my trips. Looking at the amout of data spent I would recommend 2 things:

  • If you travel by car, get yourself a $100 GPS, it will save you loads of data and hassle.
  • If you use your phone, load the route with data on and the start navigation. Once you start it, turn the data off. The route stays the same but does not updates restaurants and other businesses around but you will save a lot of precious data.

Other than that, Google map is super reliable aside from a few dirt roads missing and is very easy to use, so go on, get lost!
