Wellington. The new home
To start off, here’s a picture from Levin Campsite (our last stop before getting to Wellington) it should have gone on the last blog, but James has only just sent it to me!
So, off to Welly we went, and obviously like any self respecting bike riders the first thing to do was find the trails!
So, that is pretty much the entire city. Wellington, although the capital is tiny, which, for non-city dwellers as we are, is pretty handy!
We found our campsite for the evening, which was a steal at only $10 each a night.
That only meant one thing. Sleeping bags were required! After trapsing around god knows how many shops we found a pretty decent sleeping bag, for a partly eye watering price so two of those were bagged, haha, bag, see what I did (yes, I’m laughing at my own joke!)
James, being the grown up that he is, was shipped off to work, (look at him with a packed lunch and a back pack!) looking ever so happy
The sea!!!! Actual sea water!!!! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaay!
After picking James up from a positive first morning of work, tour guide Victoria showed James the sights and we decided where we’d like to live, which just so happened to be the most expensive part of town.
After a few more days at work for James and sitting in the library drinking coffee for me, James was given a couple of days off before the Easter weekend which meant only one thing…
Not 100% sure we are so keen for the ‘working’ bit of our ‘Working Holiday Visa’ but hey!
Alas, the adventure continues
