We ♥ Wellington
Neil and I have returned from our amazing getaway in the Coolest Little Capital, Wellington City. It was with somewhat of a heavy heart that we had to leave this beautiful place on Saturday, as our stay was definitely not long enough - but at least I can say it was long enough to explore some great sights & sounds, meet some incredible locals and enjoy some amazing dining. A big shout out to Bryn from Absolutely Positively Wellington for setting us up here, being our guide and sharing his awesome knowledge about Wellington :)
We have managed to fall in love with this City in just a few days and have too many photos to share in just one post, so Neil and I have decided to use this next week to share some of the awesome places we have visited and recommend some of the best restaurants, cafes and attractions.
Starting with the Amora Hotel where we stayed at. This beautiful hotel is situated right in the centre of the CBD, overlooking the harbour and Te Papa Museum (we definitely had the best views in town!) and offered us nothing but style and comfort. I can't help but comment on the friendliness of the staff (especially in the lounge where we were served breakfast and pre-dinner drinks and canapes) as they made our stay so enjoyable. This will be a returning spot for us, for sure!
And being so close to the harbour, we made daily visits along the wharf - including a mandatory stop at the ice-cream shop of coarse!
I am so excited to be sharing more with you tomorrow - especially the restaurants and cafes! There's nothing like enjoying good food whilst on holiday! :)
Hope you all had an enjoyable weekends as well x
