Welcome to Wellington, New Zealand (Part 1)


I went to New Zealand (North Island only) towards the end of my University studies in 2010. It was the first overseas trip my University has ever organised and it was a bargain!  AU$1200.00 for 2 weeks includes food, accomodation and tours! I’d be silly not to take it up!

Anyway, I’m posting up photos from the past but I just had to show you guys the beautiful views New Zealand has to offer!

We had a free day in Wellington. Just a relax first day of our trip staying at Bay Plaza Hotel. I rented a bicycle and cycled all around sites I want to see from the map.

My first impression of Wellington started from the airport. Their airport is right next to the bay! How awesome is that?

As a student I didn’t want to spend so much money so the bicyle is the best way to get around and if I remember correctly.. I think 12 hours was like NZ$25 (back in 2010 of course).

The next day we headed to Taupo after stopping by Mount Victoria.
