Wellington, New Zealand

Day 64

Our bus left Taupo and headed south toward Wellington. It was a pretty long day from Taupo to Wellington, so today was spent pretty much in the bus. Along the way, we did stop at a few places that had good views of the three volcanoes close to Taupo.

One of the volcanos around Taupo. Fellow LOTR geeks will recognize it as the model for Mt. Doom.

Another of the the volcanos close to Taupo. It had just snowed a couple of days before we got there so they were really impressive looking.

We got into Wellington during the afternoon, and our bus took us up to the outlook point at the Botanical Gardens. We took a short walk around the city, but ended up going to bed early.
