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


Any time you will book an activity that requires pick up, chances are that your pick up point will be the town’s iSites. The information sites are present in almost every town you will visit. It is worth mentioning that those are private businesses that are booking agents for most activity providers in the area. So keep comparing.

The iSites are also a great place for updates on local events and weather forecasts. In iSite nearby hiking areas, track updates are also available as well as warnings and maps. Yes, I said it, this is where you stock up on maps and free guides!

iSites are located in every town of New Zealand
