After a quick stop at the hotel to drop off our bags, Mark drove us on a bit of a Tiki Tour of Wellington, and Lu told us what we needed to know about everything.

Wandering

One of the other girls and I decided to head back to the hotel, divest ourselves of our warm clothes and go for a walk around and up the cable car to the botanical gardens.

My nephew would love this cable car, and the coloured lights in the tunnels.

Botanical Gardens

We wandered around for a bit then I started recognising most of the plants (we then realised we were in the Australian garden!!). We also saw a massive Californian Redwood tree, which made me add a redwood forest to my bucket list.
