So I have just arrived in Wellington, after my 11 hour stint on the road yesterday....... Half of that was spent driving with one eye closed as the mountain ranges were so high, yes I know I am a wimp, but I am in a high sided vehicle you know!
I called by at Waitapu (Champagne pool and Lady Knox Geyser). They put soap into the Geyser to ensure it errupts at 10.15am each day - nice and naturally occuring hey!!
Had lunch above Lake Taupo which was lovely and I fed some ducks - how cute!
Arrived in Wellington in the dark, and after getting totally lost.... but I'm here and the campsite has lovely views of the hills. I have tried to upload some more photos. Han, it is a pain waiting for them to upload.... you must have spent days doing yours!
Right I'm going into the city for a bit of a look around. If i'm feeling REALLY BRAVE I may venture up on the Gondola, to see the views over Wellie - they are supposed to be beautiful (may need a few stiff drinks first, with my fear of heights and all that)
I really like this city - will give you another update soon
Off to the South Island tomorrow - I just can't wait. Not long until I go Whale watching (!!!)
Anyway folks take care
