We had a fabulous 2 days in Wellington. It certainly lived up to its name and we experienced the wind! We caught the cable car to the lovely gardens and spent the afternoon walking back to the city centre.
Wellington is full of great restaurants, pubs and coffee shops. The Zest food, walking tour was a great way to learn about the city and eat your way around.
The Te Papa Museum is worth the trip and the amazing Gallipoli Exhibition is running until 2018 and is mind blowing.
1 hour from Wellington is the wine region of Martinborough. We hired a car and made our way there for a relaxing and fun few days.
Once again we ate our way around the little picturesque town and stayed in the beautiful Martinborough Hotel.
The highlight of our time was the cycle wine tour that showed us many of the local vineyards, olive groves and was a great
way to meet the makers. The scenery was amazing and allowed us to sample the
products. It was a lot of fun and a great way to relax.
Wellington and Martinborough combined is the perfect little getaway for those people who can only get away for a few days and don’t want to fly long distances.
