[#fly2NZ] New Zealand Day 8

[#HELLOSIHUIGOESNZ Oct-Nov 2017]

Leaving New Plymouth for a really long journey to Wellington. We decided to have a really simple stopover at Wellington just for our ferry over to the South Island. This journey took us 5hours, probably the longest for the past 8 days.

After 2.5 hours of car ride, we need toilet, we need food, and we were here for a short break. It’s such a pretty cafe in this small town – Foxton.

Shopping District + Dinner

Wellington remind me alot of Melbourne, a shopping district. I bought my first purchase in New Zealand – Pandora. I got my NZ exclusive charm. I have made a point to buy a exclusive charm every trip to keep this travel bracelet very very memorable :)

We thought the soft shell crab is tasty and better comparing the two.

Airbnb

 photo IMG_0648 copy_zps9mqddxmj.jpgWe booked the airbnb with a label as The Castle (in Lower Hutt), to find out its designed by a well-known New Zealand architect Ian Athfield. The rooms have great view of Wellington Harbour. During our ride over, we will be having a great view of the beach for the entire ride from Wellington. Such breath-taking :)

P.S. Ian Athfield is really famous with his work especially – Wellington Central Library, Jade Stadium in Christchurch, and even Bangkok rapid transport system.

The stairs, that teng said it look like beauty and the beast dungeon. she doesnt have a good feeling of the entire stay, while I find it alright, too steep and narrow stairs.
