Having arrived in windy Wellington we did the proper 'backpacking' thing and walked for half an hour with our backspacks on to find our hostel - we've been used to door to door service! It didnt help that our hostel was at the top of a really steep street. A few of us from the coach met up in town and proceeded to take advantage of the $5 drinks at the bar... only problem was that the special was only on spirits. Oh well... a night of whiskey is always good to put some hairs on the old chest! It was fairly quiet out but we had a good laugh with the people we were with which included English, Irish, French and German. We eventually found a lively Irish bar with the customary eccentric locals and live music. Good fun was had by all. We finally ended up in a mini bar/night club and partied through the night.
The following night we treated ourselves to a meal on the sea front. It was nice to eat something other than rice/pasta. We found a quaint little pizza joint and luckily they knocked $50 off the bill as they accidentally cancelled our order. Result. With our bellies full and the night still young we decided to go to the local cinema to watch a flick - Paranormal Activity 2. Not one for the faint hearted. It had us both jumping throughout but it was good fun.
