One of the typical views of Wellington you see on the postcards. It started getting drizzly again, so I used the free hot drink coupon that came with my cable car ticket to get a hot chocolate at the café by the station for my walk through the gardens. I wished I had got the macchiato instead. Chatting to the barista, I asked if the weather is always this bad in the winter. His response: "Oh, it's usually worse." I guess Wellington does have a reputation for its weather, so maybe I should be happy that it's at least not windy and stormy!
