A couple of weekends ago we decided to start things off easy with a walk to the summit of Mount Victoria (0r Mount Vic as it gets called around here), which to me is actually much more of a hill than a mountain, but that may be due to the fact I grew up seeing this outside my window each morning.
Mount Victoria is right in Wellington city so we don't have to walk very far to reach it - I think I had forgotten how steep it was though.
It does often get a wee bit windy down here in Wellington!
I know I look like miss grumpy with my arms crossed, but I wasn't I promise, it was just really cold at the summit. Lots and lots of cold, cold wind!
