Back at the carpark by 2:30pm and start the 4-hour drive south to Wellington through some army training areas and more beautiful vistas. I make it into Wellington at 6:30, just in time to make it to the toilet before I almost pee my pants and find accommodation before sunset. I go out for a bit, but make it an early night after exploring most of downtown Wellington by foot. It seems like a fun yet slightly sleezy place and I don't feel like I'm missing much when I hit the bed around midnight.
Of note: Tonight was the first time that I shared a room along my trip. I looked around at a few places and everything was booked between the big rugby match that I missed (as it took me a while to find a room) and a few conventions that booked the capital city. Anyways, I wind up in a 4-share room at a hostel with 2 guys from London and one from South Korea. Everyone seems nice enough and I really don't mind sharing my room as much as I had presumed I would.
