Wellington: Flight and Arrival

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.

Touchdown!

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.

    1. 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!
