Back in Wellington

Yesterday I took the bus from Nelson on the South Island to Picton where I caught the Interisland ferry over to Wellington. The weather varied about every 10 or 15 minutes from rain to bright sunshine and every shade of grey in between. I met a bunch of fun Kiwis on the ferry and we talked all the way to Wellington. We saw dolphins as we left Queen Charlotte sound and turned toward Wellington. I always love seeing them no matter how many times it happens.

Once back in Wellington it was a grey very windy day and it was late so I checked into the Downtown hostel then went out for a couple pints. I had a good time at the pub. They all remembered my name from 6 weeks ago but my porous brain could not remember one of theirs. I need to get my brain replaced soon.

Today I need to make all my bookings for the next five days before I leave for Australia. I have three buses to book and five nights for beds. Once in Sydney I already have the first four nights booked and paid for. I will also need to get my bike boxed up and to the airport. I have that booked at a bike shop near the airport.

I was riding a bus but here are a few blurry pics from that and a few from the ferry ride too.


  1. Hey Roach
    I'm not sure if you've been getting my posts!
    This blog confuses my simple mind
    Where was I?
    Have fun... Pics have been great!
    Half pint says hi

  2. I have been getting all comments I think. Say hi back to half pint for me. I will be heading to Australia in a few days. Then three months will fly by just like it did here in NZ and I will be back to kick your butt on the table again. Enjoy life scott, paparoach
