We visited the work of a light projection artist in Wellington at Massey University and adored thesebeautiful colourful shapes projected on walls and boxes,

We had a nice stroll around the city. We stayed at a back packer. The backpackers in NZ are great.
I love hanging out in the "lounch" and "kitchen" and chatting to people from all over the world. Many
backpackers are visited by older people. This was one for young people but they accepted us and we even made a friend :)
A very precious moment. We had dinner with the whole family which is rare as they all live spread over NZ. We had such a lovely time.
A snapshot from the gardens in Wellington.
and another one.
Of course we visited Te Papa, the national museum and art gallery in Wellington. We went to an amazing exhibition about the story of the soldiers who fought and died in WW1 in Gallipoli in Turkey.
Sir Peter Jackson helped create this amazing exhibition where giant sculptures, 2.4 times human size, told a story which gave us an insight in the experiences of the soldiers.
The giant sculptures took about 24000 hours to create and is a reminder of the nearly 2800 people who lost their lives. The exhibition will be open till 2018 so come and visit.
A well deserved rest in the big chair after walking through nearly all streets of Wellington.
