Woke up this morning and took another walk along the water, up through Lambton Quay and the downtown Wellington area to see this beehive looking building next to parliament. Around town, there are numerous public sculptures. I dig it. Wellington sort of reminds me of Toronto maybe. I went along the Terrace back to the hostel to find myself rushing to the bus to catch my flight to Christchurch. When I got to the airport in the knick of time, it was announced 15 minutes later that my flight had been delayed by 3 hours! I hate that. If I knew I had that much time I would have taken the cable car up the hill and grabbed lunch. Pacific Blue did provide a $6 (not enough for a drink with my Chicken & Brie sandwich) meal voucher to appease us.
I dropped $2 on Global Gossip internet before I realized that the airport has free (but really slow and weak) wifi. I've snuck into the conference area though and the signal's strong enough for me to bore you with these fine words while I kill time. Wish my phone worked. Maybe someone's online...
I forgot how rubbish I am about taking photos when I'm traveling alone. People told me to take a lot of pictures and aside from Asia, I really didn't take enough photos. I've learned that you never regret taking too many photos, especially when you haven't kept a detailed journal. Argh.
