Spent a few wonderful days in Wellington, New Zealand. Despite some seriously high winds, we managed to spend a considerable amount of time outside, even going on a few short hikes. There were some spectacular sites from the hills.
Our host, Neil, was even kind enough to drive us around for a great tour of the city. There’s LOTS to see. What a beautiful city!!
Surrounded by water, it’s hard to believe that they managed to squeeze in an airport! Must have been one heck of a construction project.
The city center feels a bit busy, but it’s still pretty casual. Tons of places to shop and a great cafe around every corner. There’s even some pretty decent ‘street art’. If you go, don’t forget to visit the “Te Papa” Cultural museum. It’s really really good.
I also had the pleasure to meet Lukas Jury, a 19 year old guitar player who’s absolutely AMAZING! He plays down on Cuba St. each weekend. The guy has a gift. Check him out:
