Wonderful Wellington!!!


I came across something called Quotes about Wellington recently and thought I would share with you one that I rather liked...as a Wellingtonian I might be biased a little, but it is very true...

"Wellington is to Auckland what Melbourne is to Sydney, and what San Francisco is to Los Angeles. It has character instead of homogeneity; it is compact, not sprawling; it is quietly confident, not brash and in-your-face...Wellington is a diverse and sophisticated place that is too often left off the tourist trail."
Anna Fifield: Financial Times (UK)
