An overnight bus journey from Auckland (in one of the most inexpensive bus "Manabus") landed us in Wellington. The bus dropped us at the Quay street. We took a taxi from the Quay street to reach our Airbnb home. Our Airbnb home was a beautiful property located on an isolated hill. The metro station and a departmental store located near the house were a blessing in disguise.What we did in Wellington?We had two days in Wellington. We spent the first day on Hop on Hop off visiting the famous attractions such as - the Parliament House, the Museum, the Wellington cable car, the Rose garden etc. The best part of the day was roaming in and around the Parliament House of the Kiwis and learning about their transparent democracy. Had we planned our tour wisely, we could also have seen their Prime Minister.We spent the second day cruising to the northern most point of the South Islands - Picton. It was a 3 hour ferry journey. We spent 2 delightful hours at Picton exploring every nook and corner of it and got back to the capital.
