    ... trying to get an early bite on their hooks. As we rounded the harbour, we found ourselves strolling inland to the main shopping and business district of Lambton Quay. Unlike London, we were surprised to see that no one was rushing around here. Everyone was strolling along at leisure, probably enjoying the blissful sunshine, just like us!

    We then took Wellington’s famous funicular cable car from Lambton Quay to ...

It is a city and the capital of NZ so a lot busier than we have been used to lots of shops still the same style as all over the country but more of them.

    ... say we "felt" Christmas. Last night was Christmas Eve and we joined others around a piano bar with folks from all over the world and sang Christmas carols. It was amazing to realize how universal carols are -- the tune the same, it's only the words that change. Soon, it was as if we were all one big family belting out Christmas songs, some goofy, others heart-felt. The mood was festive and fun. Afterwards ...
