Day 43/72: WellingtonDecember 9, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C
Today we travelled from the Tongariro National Park to Wellington. It was a long drive, so we set off early in the morning, with a stop at a bakery for breakfast. We got stale bread, barely defrosting but sopping wet banana cake, and carrot cake that even Tom didn't finish, and decided that New Zealand is too far from France to have good bakeries.
The drive was beautiful, watching the mountains fade in our rearview mirror. Wellington seemed like a very cool city, plenty of surfing and skate shops for us to look around at length. We had the most awful milkshakes from a café (like drinking a pint of warm whipped cream with some cookies crumbled in) and bought plenty of Christmas decorations for the campervan. We got to the campsite and cooked the first meat we've cooked all the time we've been in NZ (steaks) and settled in for the night. Unfortunately not a good photo day, but the sun was shining and we were both smiling a lot, I'm sure.Read more
