Wehey - Back in the north Island. I hope Wellington is more fun than the last time I came through here. We got into the hostel and then pretty much headed straight out to meet some friends for a drink.
Guess what - It is guy fawlkes night!! and they really celebrate it here too, The Pub we were going to was on the harbour and it just so happened that they were putting on a big fireworks display there as well so the whole place was really alive. Kinda wierd to see so many people after so many quiet ghost towns.
Was quite a nice night - but had to get up pretty early the next day! Slept most of the morning on the bus but did wake up to see the bird sanctuary and finally got to see a Kiwi! The only way you can describe them is like a big fluffy football with a long beak!
Got into Napier about 3pm and had a look round the town. It was 97% destroyed by earthquakes so has been completely rebuilt in an art deco style. Actually found it to be a lovely town - lots of parks and it is on the coast as well! Just not a lot of time here!
