Here we are in Wellie




Long day - we arrived in Auckland at 5.30 am and in Wellington at 8.30am. So lucky ha ha to have John Keys NZ prime minister across the aisle from us. Spotted this guy when we checked in to our hotel




Went shopping and wandering. Lovely day and a sailing ship in the harbour




We enjoyed roaming around - the city is buzzing with people - big rugby game tomorrow and Ian was delighted to see some rugby greats including Colin Meads



There's a few cemeteries outside our room

Tonight we went to dinner with Raylene and Ken - lovely to catch up and of course I didn't take a photo - Sunday




On the way back we passed a sculpture to Katherine Mansfield - one of NZ probably best known short story writers




Detail

Long day when you travel through the night - more adventures tomorrow

I hope you have had a good rest to be ready for the game tonight - does Ian go dressed in All black colours? Cheers

We in Europe forget (or don't know!) how great the distances are in Australia - I've just been looking at the atlas and Perth to Wellington is over 5000 km (3260 or so miles), whew! That's many hours on a plane!
