74 : Windy Wellington

Hi, its been quite a while aite?

I really really really miss writing but I feel like giving up since my hard disk died on me and most of my NZ pictures were also gone. What's left is just whatever I have in my phone gallery and my dropbox Y__Y

Anyways, after 3 hours journey crossing Cook Straits; I safely arrived the North Island again before the storm making it's way to the South Island (phewww!) Will, my former co-worker back in Dunedin; was already waiting for me when I got down from the ferry, waving at me from far. And..I didn't know that he came with his mom! (Pictures all gone, dangg!) His mom is such a sweetheart, giving me a lift and even offered me a spare couch in her living room for the night.

Magnificent view from Will's crib
 I had a lovely chat with his mom and later, joined by his dad. Will's mom even cooked me a very lovely dinner.

Next morning, I was bidding farewell to his mom and headed to the hostel where I booked for about 3 nights, Wellywood Backpackers. We went by foot, and it was actually quite a journey with my heavy backpack hehe Lucky me, Will was there to help me carry my backpack (and his guitar too!) to the nearest train station, Crofton Downs.

I can't really remember the duration of the journey to city center, maybe it's around half an hour?
Will then brought me to the hostel for check in and he left for his busking session with his mate.

Wellington Railway Station. MAJOR LOVE!

The hostel is so fancy in that zebra design, I know. Pic from google.
After sorting out life everything, I was heading out with no plans and trying to look out for I-sites to get information since the reception looked a lil bit overwhelmed with people at that time. Traveling alone allowed me to take my own sweet time to explore the city, anyways.

To be continued..
