I’ve been in Wellington for 2 1/2 weeks, and I’m grateful to say that everything has come together more than I could’ve hoped for. I have a job in the city with a good amount of hours, I’m moving into my new apartment in a few days with a group of Kiwis I could see myself becoming great friends with. I’ve made connections in my hostel from all over the world and New Zealand, I now have friends to visit and places to stay from Auckland to Christchurch once I start traveling the country. I just bought a huge bed, which is quite a big deal for my wandering self, I’ve made the big gesture, in my mind, of staying put in Wellington for awhile. I have one more month of being 23, so without further ado, here are 23 photos of my journey in Wellington so far. I have big hopes for this small city that has shown itself to have such a classy character.
