Wellington in Winter

Please forgive this touch of self indulgence, but my daughter Annabel who lives in Wellington sent me this photo from her walk this morning, exploring the hills around the city and I've decided to share it with you. The start of a beautiful winters day in New Zealand's capital city. If you have a favorite New Zealand photo you'd like to share, send it in and we'll add it to our blog collection.

The opening of the modern Museum of New Zealand, called Te Papa Togarewa, has been one of the factors in Wellington becoming increasing popular with overseas visitors, as has the great food and wine experiences that can be enjoyed here.

Oh yes, and my two daughters and five grand-children live there too, as does my business partner Jerry Bridge, with his wife Katie and two young children.

We include Wellington in many of our New Zealand itineraries. Here's an example, the North Island Self Drive.


Museum of New Zealand, the full Maori name being Te Papa Tongarewa.
