It's been lovely going through all our hundreds of photos this past week and look back on our experience. So I thought it best to summarize our highlights in case any of you lovely folk every manage to do a trip down to Wellington.

♥ Staying at the Amora Hotel
♥ Dinner at Hummingbird (amazing staff, amazing food and they've won a ton of awards!)
♥ Having drinks at The Library - a reading room & lounge bar, whilst enjoying some awesome live jazz music (pictures 1, 2, 3)
♥ Touring through the Weta Caves and seeing props like swords, knives and guns from movies such as Lord of the Rings, District 9 and Narnia (a-mazing!)
♥ Checking out the Old Bank Shopping Arcade - beautiful shops!!
♥ Going to the City Art Gallery and checking out their latest exhibition Prospect
♥ Enjoying dancing and a night out at Mighty Mighty

♥ Having a drink and relaxing on the bean bags at St John's on the waterfront (picture 4)
♥ Exploring Cuba Street with all it's wonderful and eccentric shops (picture 5)
♥ Milkshakes & tea at Martha's Pantry - best milkshakes in town! (picture 6)
