View from mount Victoria.


After a rainy day we started the day with sunshine. But too bad there wasn't time to go up to the volcano. We have a long trip to Wellington to go, so we started early, around 8 o'clock. The coffeestop was in a very small village called flat hills. You cannot find it on a map. It is a short stop so we continue. The next stops are in Hunterville and Bulls. We stopt then in Foxton where they have a windmill, (like the Netherlands). It is running by a bunch of volenteers. What an idea... flying half across the world to see a windmill :).

Then we asked the driver to drive up to mount Victoria before we go to the hotel. Otherwise we had to walk to the top, or by taxi. We had a beautiful view over Wellington. After cheque-in we walked with a few people to the Te papa museum. What I red about the museum: "Te Papa is New Zealand's national museum, offering visitors a unique and authentic experience of this country's treasures and stories. Over five floors, you can explore the nation's nature, art, history, and heritage - from the shaping of its land to the spirit of its diverse peoples, from its unique wildlife to its distinctive art and visual culture". From there on we kept on walking and saw the Beehive building. The main building of the complex is Parliament House.

Then a last stop at the trainstation and then to a restaurant for diner. The last stop was at an Irish pub :) before we walked back to our hotel.
