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


Before leaving I made sure to get all my friend and family on Skype, added them to my account and though I could video chat with them regularly.


It is not that simple. With rare internet access and very slow speed I ended up having to cut the video and stick with call, when it worked the quality was ok at best and it took so long to set up that it felt more frustrating than anything else. Luckily for me, my friends are loving and despite the hard time keeping in touch, they reserved me a great welcome at home.
