Wednesday- We woke up to a beautiful morning in Wellington and had to make our way out of the hostel by 10:00 am. We sweet-talked the receptionist into letting us keep our car parked in their lot for the rest of the day- so we packed our belongings into Gloria and headed off to the Te Papa museum.
We had about an hour and a half to get ready after zorbing and we all rushed around to meet the bus that would take us to dinner. The traditional Maori meal is made underground and is smoked and is, if I do say so myself, incredibly delicious! Not only did we receive dinner, we also received an overview of Maori history, were taken on a bush walk to see some Maori traditions and the local glowworms, and were given a show of the traditional Maori dances and culture. The entire night was like a spectacular history lesson that no one could get enough of! All of the aspects of the show and the whole night were so well done and interesting and I feel like I am much more knowledgeable about New Zealand’s past and traditional culture.
