Prior to this trip, I thought Auckland was New Zealand’s capital city. No, it isn’t.
Although second to Auckland as the most populous urban area, Wellington is New Zealand’s capital city.
My childhood friend Shellah, and her friend Vikka, invited me to join them for an overnight trip to this cosmopolitan city.
When within New Zealand, Wellington is accessible by air, train, car, ferry or cruise ships.
We flew Jetstar Airways and the service was ok for the 1 hour flight.
First thing I noticed was the airport sign. I’ve heard that Wellington is a hub of creative people, but I didn’t expect them to be this clever.
Welcome to the Middle of Middle Earth!
They have a massive eagle sculpture inside the airport. Hello, Gandalf!
I was told that the airport is famous for other LOTR and Hobbit sculptures in the past years. I Googled and found these…
Out in the streets…
Because I was sick that time, I just wanted hot soup for lunch. We ended up having a big meal. :PHappy tummy, happy kids. What’s next?

It doesn’t look like *you* got the soup, lol!
Thanks for the trivia, didn’t know Wellington was the capital, either!

Yeah, story of my life. I just want soup and end up a full meal. I just want siomai and would end up in a Chinese buffet. I just want a plate of sushi and would end up devouring a full Japanese bento box with Ramen with dessert pa!
