We made it to Wellington. We are staying at a funky place called Rowena's Backpackers. It has a little camping area in the back, but it is in the thick of downtown Wellington. Our bikes are secured in a shed while we are out tramping around Wellington.
Tomorrow we'll go to the Te Papa Museum. Also, we need to find bubble wrap for Leandra's bike. I know how to get to the Bluebridge Ferry on the 2nd. It's not too far from the backpackers.
Here's some photos from today's walking around.
