Napier to Wellington

Driving down to Wellington

March 7, 2005

Today we left the Napier and Hastings area for Wellington. I was super psyched to find that most of the trip was straight highways so it seemed to go faster than the windy roads. We got into Wellington and immediately I realized what a busy city it was and the downtown was a little intimidating to drive through. We made it safe and sound to our hostel and did a nice walk around the harbour which was a great area for bikers, runners and walkers. You can tell that's where the money of the city was at. We found a decent pizza joint and had a beer. I was shocked to hear that 2 beers were $11NZ though. That's brutal when you're on a tight budget, but I guess we need a treat here and there.
