Video: A Windy Day in Wellington

A couple of weeks ago, I posted what an amazing spring day in Wellington looks like.  It really is true that you can’t beat Wellington on a good day.  But then there are the not-so-good days.  It’s funny that I went from one “windy city” to another, but the wind here can sometimes be otherworldy.  To put in perspective, Wellington can average 18 mph winds while Chicago averages 11.1 mph, and winds can get up to 64 mph here.  You better hold on to your hat!

To show you just how windy it can be, check out this little video of one morning’s walk to school:

Hope your day is a lovely, smooth sailing kind of day!

I’ve been lucky enough that one of my favorite forever family friends–try that for alliteration–came to visit me in New Zealand during my two week school holiday.  I’ve known Regina since she was born, and she has inspired me to be the woman I am today. And one of her many talents is that she is a filmmaker.

The saying goes here that “you can’t beat Wellington on a good day,” and we had an absolutely glorious spring day in Wellington when Regina first arrived.  I was honored that she captured the day on her iphone and made this video for me–an incredibly meaningful souvenir of my amazing adventure. I will treasure this memento always.  I hope you enjoy the beautiful Wellington sights and sunshine with me!
