Windy Welly....again

Well, we're coming into the our last few days on the North Island. We have slightly rushed down here but the World Cup only comes around every 4 years and I think I'm entitled to see England lose ;-)

Its great to be back in Wellington. We were here over Christmas and the place has lost none of its charm. Its just full of cosy cafes, restaurants and bars that you can easily spend a relaxing few days getting over our adrenalin filled ones!

We stayed up to watch the England match (it didn't finish until 6am here!) and I managed to see all the other quarter finals and apart from that we didn't do all that much here except visit the Te Papa museum again. It had a really good Lord of the Rings exhition on which had so many of the original props, waxwork models, dummies and clay models. The details involved in creating some of these things is unreal and very impressive.

Off to the South Island next and hopefully some snowboarding....can't wait!
