Train and Ferry

Last weekend, we travelled by train and ferry to the North Island. I had never done this trip before, because it is quicker and almost as cheap to fly, but the views are better by rail and ferry. The ferry travels through the bush clad hills of the Queen Charlotte Sound for an hour before crossing Cook Strait to Wellington.

Wellington has a reputation for being windy, but on Saturday the sea was calm and the city looked spectacular.

On Sunday we travelled to Martinborough and Greytown in the Wairarapa. These small towns are popular with day-visitors from Wellington.
