Skipping a proper post on Palmerston North cause we only stayed one night as a stopover before continuing on the journey to Wellington.
Pictures below for some of the sights we saw in PM!
1 November, Sunday
XM’s last day in NZ before she flies off on the 2nd. We finally returned the car in Wellington after a good 13 days. It’s been a good run!
Decided to stay put in the city to explore what Wellington has to offer. It’s the day where the All Blacks emerged victorious for the Rugby World Cup so the city was pretty quiet in the morning.
We kind of intended to catch the game at 4am but… sleep > everything else.
Went back to the apartment after making a round at one of our favorite places – New World – to stock up on supplies for me, and edible souvenirs for XM.
I wasn’t flying back with XM because I wanted to stay longer. Might as well, since I’m all the way in New Zealand! Gotta make my money’s worth.
Next up: Alone in Wellington.
