Wellington

New Zealand's capital Wellington is not the country's largest city (that honour goes to Auckland), but it's a vibrant city with a thriving café scene and many great museums, galleries and music venues. "Windy Wellington" is set along the Cook Strait at the south-western tip of North Island.

What a waste of money! $50 a night for a single room with no facilities, and minimal heating. Windows are left open all night in the middle of winter, and doors bang night and day. Lifts are turned off overnight, leaving people to drag heavy bags up and down the stairs. ... more

    Emily goes to school for the day with Finn today at Onslow College and finds some things to be quite different to how they are at Roundwood Park.
