I can't quite put my finger on the correct adjective/s that I would use to describe the feeling of Wellington? Very different to Auckland

Back when i was in wellington in november 1997 i loved it. It seems to get better with time and i think for such a small city it has a great feeling and look "the look and feel of a much larger city"

Just love the pictures of the Capital! Thanks - the old buildings all done up and the beautiful wooden villa homes....... makes me weep for the distruction and vandalisim that is happening in Christchurch!

St Pauls is certainly a unique cathedral - the rose pink colour inside is so striking!

Well done Wellington - protect all that you have - you are a national showcase :-)

You are right, it feels much, much bigger than it really is. Every time we go it does seem to get better and better. This time round I was willing to ignore the weather and make it my home but Auckland has won the fight Thanks for the comment mate.

Oh Christchurch !! We just spent two days with Luka and got an update of all the things happening there - mostly positive Davee - don't despair Let's hope that it never happens to Wellington, my heart will surely break
