... there were Indian and Chinese restaurants just a 5 minute walk and we quickly found a hole in the wall Indian called Curry Heaven, and it was. It seemed to be mostly take-aways, but we were offered a table and we made quick work of ordering.
The food was fantastic!
We then went back to the room and we were both tired so used up Wi-Fi and paid for more and then went to sleep.

Following a difficult chat with my mum (mostly difficult because I was so emotional and exhausted) we managed to find a way for me to rest and be happier- stay with someone through Air BnB. My first attempt didn't but I ended up finding something really nice just outside Wellington. A superb flat, modern, comfortable, a real show home!
