There is a saying that is world famous in New Zealand... "You can't beat Wellington on a good day."
It's true! We went to Wellington on Saturday for the Wine and Food Show, which was ok, but I don't know that we'd go again.
Wellington however, is probably my favourite place in the world. It's a compact, friendly place. And it's beautiful. This is the view from our hotel window. The tinted glass makes it look a little dark. Actually it was the most glorious autumn day - the breeze a little cool - but otherwise PERFECT

That looks lovely. I would love to travel New Zealand some day. Glad you enjoyed the weather!

It was a lovely weekend in town. I have heard the same thing about the food show, a bit of a letdown really.

Thanks for visiting our blog.

You know I always forget our seasons are opposite each other. I still find that amazing

Wellington looks beautiful. I love the opposite seasons thing.

Is this where "wellies" originated...?

It IS gorgeous isn't it?
I think "wellies' were named after the Duke of Wellington - as indeed Wellington (the city) was. My 'history' gene has deserted me for the moment... I can't remember when the Duke was doing his thing...
