And so the long trip home begins. I doubt there'll be many (if any) interesting posts from now on given I'll be in cities until I land back in London on January 1st. A flight on the 28th will get me to Auckland in enough time for a flight to Bangkok where four nights of a big, big city experience (and no doubt some humidity) await. Having seen in the new year there, a flight on January 1st will get me back to dear ol' Heathrow.
Before all that, today's trip took me away from South Island and across to little Wellington city. A short flight across the water and a sunny landing in windy welly.
A quick trip to the lookout on Mt Victoria to allow views of the harbour and city and to scout out a route for a possible run out tomorrow.
And now to try and remember what people do when they visit cities...
The wanderer is changing base. A desire is being realised. The UK will no longer be the wanderer's base.
From January 2019, Te Wai Pounamu in Aoteroa becomes the wanderer's home base.
A wee city named Ōtautahi in a place more recently named Canterbury will be home.
