Today we cross Cook Strait from Wellington and begin our journey on the South Island. Fortunately, Wellington hasn’t lived up to its reputation as ‘Windy Welly’. It’s been nothing but clear blue skies and bright blue sea. As the crossing point between the North and South, most travellers move quickly through the city but it’s worth lingering. We spent a day at the amazing Te Papa museum, crawling inside a blue whales heart and seeing the only Giant Collosal squid in the world – you see the fun we have!!
