Wellington with Golum

I took the ferry yesterday to Wellington. I was supposed to do some kayak in Picton, but due to a rainy weather and wind gusts around 120kph it was 'delayed'. It could have been a cheap way to sail to Australia though . I had a lift from 2 nice aussies, Joyce and Juanita who I met at Sequoia Lodge and we checked in (after touring the city) at Base Backpackers, a newly opened hostel. It's still under construction but promises to be a mass factory in the near future. It's lacking a bit of charm but facilities are obvious: big screen TV, flat-screen internet terminals, music, nice beds, comfy rooms and showers, fully furnished kitchen, etc...
