An Overnight Escape to Wellington, New Zealand
My husband and I lived in Wellington, New Zealand's capital city, for many years and it is still a place close to my heart. We now live only a two hour drive away, so I return there often. The call of the city has been haunting me for a couple of months now and I've tried to ignore it, convincing myself the money is better sitting in my long term travel fund.
Today I finally gave in and have booked a night's accommodation for early next week. I go down on my own two or three times a year, as my husband isn't as active as he once was and he doesn't always the same things as I enjoy. I will be staying at one of my two favourite hotels and, if I'm lucky the view from my hotel room will be very similar to the one shown above. If not, the view from the rooms at the back of the hotel also have an interesting outlook.
I'm rather looking forward to the short break, driving down on Monday and returning Tuesday afternoon. Taking my car means I can stop and explore a little more widely than I could if I went down by train. The city will no doubt be busy, as there's a World Cup cricket match there later next week.
I'm looking forward to being back in Wellington again, even if just for an overnight stay. I'm hoping to get a few small things done while there, otherwise my time will be my own.
