last month i was lucky enough to visit new zealands' capital wellington. a serene harbour side city surrounded by towering snow capped mountains. work took me to wellington and i was fortunate to have one day to myself to wonder the harbour and the city streets on a gorgeous winters day. i was a little tentative of visiting due to the recent spout of earthquakes, but all was calm during my stay. wellington was; white homes splattered allover the hillsides, young families, new cafes and bars, old men of the sea, parliament, cultural, art space... worth a visit.
