Where I stayed
Arriving in Wellington, we checked into Nomads which we had expected to be one of the cheaper hostels, not only had they messed up our booking, it was damn expensive and the dorm we were in was fairly crap. With a bitter taste in our mouths we hit the shops and although Flis came back with only a pair of pumps and Henry with nothing, the walk around the city had certainly chilled us out and we saw Wellington to be a lovely city
We returned to the hostel for a little bit and ended up hitting it off with German guy who was also in our dorm. A little later and we had returned to the bar next door to get a couple more 2for1īs on the beer and to also claim our free meal with the voucher we had been given at reception on check in. This was an absolute joke however, the free meal turned out to be two finger sized spring rolls and about 6 chips and a sprig of salad. There is photographic evidence to back this up!
A few beers later and unsuprisingly still starving we returned to the hostel to eat the leftovers we had from the night before in Kaikoura. The drinking continued again and we soon made our way out with this German guy to hit the town. After ending up in a somewhat hideous Karaoke bar we went to a club which was supposed to be a bit of a Rock hangout. In fact it seemed to be a rather smart winebar with a live band and most patrons being around 30-40. The night ended in KFC as the leftovers had also proven not to fill us up!
