Wellington Wellington Wellington

Ooops! I almost forgot to tell write about Wellington. We spent about a week there wandering about, and it is a very cool city. The thing the stood out the most for me was the way they have designed their public spaces. Along downtown’s main streets there are lots of places to sit and admire the street art and people watch. It’s obvious that it is a city full of arts and culture.

Here are a few of my favourite public spots in Wellington:

A city that replaces a pedestrian overpass with a pirate ship earns lots of brownie points in my books!

I found this ingenious chicken nesting box at an installation featuring all recycled/reused materials. Caitlin and Lee Taylor created it, and called it "Chicks in Cyberspace"

I think more buildings should have pokadots
