Wellington

Oh, Wellington.. This place reminds me of being back home, it has a dock, a city, it can be nice and peaceful walking around but also has some civilisation which I like having the option! (As I found that Queenstown was so nice, but it was always busy with backpackers everywhere!).
I was initially going to stay in Wellington for another 2 months to get a job, but then I thought that it was a bit pointless by the time I actually GET a job. I wouldn’t end up earning much, so I have left back to Auckland, ready to move onto Fiji and LA.

Anyway, back onto Wellington..
I spent most of my time here in Starbucks, chilling out, looking for jobs and trying not to spend any more money! But they have a great range of free things to do, like the Te Papa Museum which is so incredible – especially the Gallipoli Exhibition by Weta Workshop! The exhibition was mindblowingly, great!

Not to forget the fact that Wellington has it’s own Welsh Bar, I know, that’s right.. A Welsh Bar.
I have never seen one (apart from in Wales, of course..) but never in a different country, it’s always Irish. So I was pretty amazed, there also seemed to be a lot of Welsh people living around that area, as I would see a lot of Welsh flags outside houses..

Wellington also is the home of the All Blacks, at the Westpac Stadium! This is where I went to Comic-Con which was really cheap compared to others, but also not too big, not too small! Great fun for a day out!

Taranaki Falls & Mt Doom

Last week, on our way to Wellington we stopped to have a walk around Taranaki Falls, where we could see the famous ‘Mt Doom’ from Lord Of The Rings. This was incredible, as I am a fan of Lord of The Rings and of the snow at the time – we also got to see the waterfall (Taranaki Falls) where Gollum eats a fish out of the water in the movie.

The walk was so beautiful, very slippery and a little dangerous, but so so beautiful! It took 2 hours to walk there and back, and it was definitely worth it! Although, if you want to see more of this, you can do the Tongariro Crossing hike, that takes 7 hours to do and you go a lot closer to Mt Doom! 11745516_10153061119117362_5318211993117064850_n 11709559_10153061120287362_3989892762674154498_n
Here is the waterfall that I mentioned earlier on, I loved that it was so cold there that it was starting to form icicles underneath the waterfall and started to make a snowy foam as the water hit the bottom!11042685_10153061120437362_8422178168144324788_n
I would highly recommend doing this walk, if you are passing the area! There’s not too much more that I am going to say on this but feel free to ask me any questions! It was a place to take in the beauty of the New Zealand nature!11403417_10153061115257362_6777366561525724174_n
