I went to visit husband in Wellington on the weekend and had a lovely time. I forgot how pretty Wellington is. Lonely Planet has called it the 'Coolest little capital in the world' and it truly is.
I stayed at the Museum Art Hotel which was a nice little boutique hotel right across the road from the waterfront and the Te Papa Museum. It is scattered with contemporary art throughout the hotel which is quite interesting and unique.

One thing we were not prepared for in Wellington was the wind. I know that it is called "Windy Wellington" for a reason, but we did not expect Gale Force winds that would knock you over if you weren't careful. But it added to the fun of it!
We went up to Mt Victoria in the gale force conditions and not surprisingly we didn't stay up there too long. But the view was lovely despite the wind and rain.

While we were there, I of course had to tackle #81 on the Life List - search for the perfect Margarita. The margarita was good... nice and simple. However not as fantastic as the one we had at Spice Market in New York.
