Here's the story, before Rich and I traveled overseas we used to do lots of day walks and hikes. But since we've returned home we haven't done this as much, I think one of the main reasons is Rich is studying for his Masters degree and working full time so he doesn't have a lot of spare time.
So I have decided that I want to get back into walking more - it won't be the same without Rich of course. But it will still be fun and of course good for me to get outdoors and out of the central city occasionally.
I decided to start off simple with a walk to the summit of Te Ahumairangi Hill, you can start this walk in Thorndon, the entry point is very near the botanical gardens.
Before you even start you have to walk up this rather steep street - Wellington has ALL THE HILLS!
Here's a wee map - Te Ahumairangi Hill is the starting point for a lot of other walks, so I might try and do one of these next weekend.
Then it was time to walk, walk, walk and take in some of the views along the way.
I made it to the lookout and celebrated with an apple and a cheesy self portrait!
A few more photos from the lookout at the summit.
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend so far xoxox
