“You just can’t beat Wellington on a good day.”
This short n’ simple sentence basically sums up Wellington in entirety. Sure, 90% of the time you’re close to blowing over from one of the city’s famous gusts (super deserving of it’s windiest city in the world title) but when the sun is out, oh boy, is it out.
Last year I felt like I barely got to experience Summer – and this time I was determined not to miss out. Summer in Wellington is beautiful, though very short lived, and last year I only made it to the beach one. So naturally, the second the sun was out, my banana-clad buns came out. The swimsuit and radio were cute wee Christmas presents from my boyfriend, Barnaby (he knows me so well). The Sunnylife radio plays music off your iPhone too, so we spent the afternoon on the beach eating fruit and jamming away to our favourite kind of music – a massive treat indeed!
Now I really need to get planning for our next beach visit. Where did I put the sunblock again..?!
