I will do my full review of Wellington soon but wanted to share an initial observation.
Wellington is a clever little city. It has accepted that its rainy and windy, and been designed with it in mind. The store fronts, traffic lights etc all have shelters to allow you to run to each one to reduce the rain impact.
Well done Wellington you clever little thing. London, a lesson to be learnt.
One last observation- what the hell is with New Zealand traffic lights! You get about 5 seconds to cross the road. I am a very fast walker but I struggle. New Zealanders must be interbreed with cheetahs.
