Out and about in Wellington

City of Wellington New Zealand 1991 with tug on waterWellington is a beautiful city and it has to be explored.

I hate eating out in the UK but New Zealand is so much better. The food just seemed to be of a far superior quality, the service everywhere was friendly and all eating places just seemed to be so much cleaner and hygenic.

So many food outlets in New Zealand have the Scandanavian Smorgasbord - eat as much as you like for one price approach. If you like your cakes you have discovered one of the country's with the scrummiest cakes in the world.

On a diet? Forget it for a few weeks and just enjoy the food. New Zealand is a destination you probably won't be able to visit every year and you should enjoy it all - food included.

You will have your camera. Use it! You only get one chance at capturing a memory. When I took these pictures I was hindered by lugging loads of 35mm films about and not knowing what the printed result would be.

That problem is not around any longer with small digital memory cards and the ability to look at and retake photos. There are no excuses (apart from the weather) any more for not getting the shot you want. Photography has never been easier. With most middle priced cameras able to take a reasonablly high quality video (some HD) you don't need to carry round a camcorder either if you want to travel light. Just take a good number of memory cards - and buy decent quality memory cards. They are far more reliable and faster.
