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


Your cell phone is probably set by default on the Google or Apple weather forecast. However, for better accuracy, you may want to go with Met Service. More accurate and tailored to the NZ market, you’ll get much more out of it.

I also like the hour by hour forecast and the UV index, as New Zealand has an unforgiving sun. There is also a summer feature that is display the pollen index for those who are allergic. Other forecast website don’t have those features.
