Loving the updates here! I especially like the art déco details. Wonderful to have you back reporting from the capital!

what I like most about this city and the other NZ cities is that they're very neat and well maintained, not to mention the varied achitecture.

It is so easy to fall in love with the place, there is so much happening there but we don't get to hear about it from the locals ... I may have to move there for a year or two

Auckland is far more polished than Wellington, once you leave the Wellington CBD it does start to look a little rougher but that is how the locals like it - they think that it is very arty and that it has character. They tend to think that Auckland is too sterile but on a whole maintenance levels are very high - just how I like it ... thanks for the comment

Wellington seems to have a very different vibe to Auckland?

Each and every part/city of NZ is very different - it is like the World squeezed into a small Country Wellywood is far more arty, quirky and creative than Auckland. Auckland is very corporate, wealthy and polished

Still the 'coolest little capital in the world'

Lonely Planet's love affair with Wellington continues to blossom with the bestselling travel guide again crooning over the capital's charms. After last year declaring Wellington the "coolest little capital in the world" Lonely Planet's 16th New Zealand edition praises the city's "compact and vibrant" CBD for its artsy mix of theatres, galleries, boutiques, museums and a "cocktail- and caffeine-fuelled hospitality scene" that fairly "fizzes and pops among the throng”. It seems Wellington is not only charming, but also easy on the eye: "It's lovely to look at, draped around bushy hillsides encircling a magnificent harbour," one of the guide's five authors wrote. Wellington's seismic susceptibility rates a mention, while CBD traffic comes with a helpful warning for those who remember 1980s television - "negotiating the inner-city one-way system is like the Krypton Factor on acid". Analogies abound, with Wellington's entertainment scene described as "a bit like the Tardis: it looks small from the outside, but inside it holds big surprises". New Zealanders' welcoming nature and eagerness for travellers to enjoy their stay impressed the authors, as did our hardiness. After enduring a testing two years that included the Pike River coalmine explosion, the Rena oil spill, and two Christchurch earthquakes, the authors said "New Zealanders have soldiered on stoically, with the people of Christchurch proving remarkably resilient” ...
