Took the northern explorer train from Auckland to Wellington. Not too bad. Had our own booth with table and headset of audio tour telling us hx of inland North island and how the Mauri settled it. Outdoor viewing car ,but our carriage had great views also. When we arrived in Wellington. It Was dark and rainy. Now it's fall here, so dark earlier than when we first arrived. Coffee is ordered as long black or short black , but these are espresso. Wine very Good , especially the whites . Not the best weather for bold reds. Since it's raining today in Wellington, we are going to work out at gym called Habit. And then try to find the museum called Te Papa down by the waterfront. oh today is an off day for the royals. They are resting, so we might catch them later in the week when they go to Christchurch. we saw a lab to get your blood drawn. Maybe I will give it a Try!
