All Blacks’ World Cup Victory Parade; Dwellin’ in Wellington

Time to put this space back into action after busy being unproductive the past year.

So! Continuing the post of my time in Wellington, New Zealand – 1 November 2015 to 7 November 2015.

In my previous post, we were travelling from Palmerston North back to our last destination – Wellington.

2 November 2015, Monday

After parting ways, I made my way to the city center area where I was to stay at three more different places. All I did for the next few days was logically plan when I should return home (the funds were running really low), rest from all that travelling and just enjoy whatever time I had left in New Zealand.

Being on a tight budget, these are the things I did throughout the course of my time:

  • Extremely frequent visits to Coles to grocery shop and be lost in the world of food
  • Visit Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (free entry!)
  • Take a one-way trip up the Wellington Cable Car and walk back down through the Botanic Garden (NZD$4 for a one-way, NZD$3.50 if you use the Snapper card which I did)
  • Catch the All Blacks’ World Cup Victory Parade!!!

Taking the time to just unwind and pen down the thoughts.

Trees, trees, trees.

Didn’t eat out much so cheap takeaways were often in Coles/ Countdown.

Met a new friend at the new Bed & Breakfast I stayed at and went together to catch the champions!

6 November 2015, Friday

Second last day in town which meant it was time for a grocery run to lug back all the chocolates I can’t get in Singapore.

I absolutely love mint so this is the perfect pairing!!! I finished a block in one go.

Marmite… Bought one for the dad cause he loves marmite and it turned out Singapore has them.
