Tara's Travels travel blog

We've made it to the North Island - not many days left in New Zealand actually! The ferry ride over to Wellington was very nice - I sat out the back the whole time so that I wouldn't feel travel sick and it worked. When we got near Wellington a pod of dolphins went past the back of the ferry - can't believe that I saw more dolphins on the ferry than I did from the dolphin cruise! After we'd arrived in Wellington and put our stuff in the hostel we headed to Te Papa - the big museum in Wellington. There were lots of really good exhibits - my favourite was about the earthquakes/volcanoes. We spent about 3 hours there - then headed home.

Today it's pouring rain here in Wellington - really was a day for staying inside. However, I thought I'd better see some of Wellington, so I headed into the main shopping part to look for summer clothes to take to Fiji. I didn't find anything - I'm so hopeless at shopping! This evening we met up with a friend of Claire's called Una - she's a med student here in Wellington. Armed with her local knowledge we found a cool little Indian restaurant called Rasa - turns out that Elijah Woods (Frodo), Sean Austin (Sam) and Dominic Monaghan (Merry) from Lord of the rings have eaten there! That made Claire and Majella's night :) After dinner we went to a nice funky little coffee shop - overall it was a great night out - we definately wouldn't have found those places without Una's help!
