So after the ANZAC day service we set out on our last road trip – down to Wellington, about a 4 hour drive.As usual the New Zealand scenery was stunning. At Foxton it became very flat and suddenly there was a Dutch windmill! That was a surprise. We stopped off and filled up with Dutch liquorice and other Dutch goodies from the shop inside. It was like being back in Amsterdam.
Arriving in Wellington we saw our cousins’ new home for the first time.
Unlike many NZ houses it is 3 storeys high, and set in the bush. It feels just like living in a big tree house!For the last few days we’ve been up to all sorts – fishing in Wellington Harbour, visiting the Wellington Botanical Gardens, visiting the brilliant Te Papa museum which has a Gallipoli exhibition on until 2019, visiting old friends from Wales, and meeting new people over pizza cooked in a home made pizza oven. It’s been busy!
We’ve had a great 2 weeks touring around with Chris and Belinda and the kids.
All change tomorrow – Chris and Belinda are back in work, the kids are back to school and we fly out Monday evening for Auckland, LA and London…
A great 4 week holiday 🙂
