Before Wellinton we stopped at Christchurch for a nightand also a night in Kaikora but didnt do much in either apart from play poker, chill out and go for walks!!
On the morning of the 24th Jan we left Kaikora and headed to Picton to catch the ferry over to Wellington and our 1st stop in the North Island. On the way we stopped at a seal colony and did a short walk to a waterfall, it was a really gorgeous sunny da. The ferry took about 3 hours but we sat up on deck so it was quite nice.We arrived quite late in Wellington so just had a drink in the hostel bar then an early night.
The following day we went for a walk around, for a capital City, Wellington is quite small and there isn't a lot to it, we went to the museum which was good as far as museums go then headed back.
