33 hours in WOWington...

WOWSER here we go flying to WOWington!
Early Sunday morning flying in – uber excited for a day of retail therapy in Wellington and WOW! 

Having been for the first time last year, WOW is one of the events that I plan to have on my yearly calendar.  This year I am travelling to Wellington with Katie for a girlie weekend treat! This time I had organised through airnz for a taxi pickup and the lovely Heston who picked us up chatted and talked about WOW and The Sound of Music.  I was blissfully unaware that The Sound of Music was currently showing but a quick google search revealed the last show was at 5pm.  Just like MAGIC Katie and I secured two of the few remaining tickets. 

A morning of retail therapy resulted in quite a few carry bags!  The rain and wind was almost blowing us around the waterfront so we stopped at Karaka Cafe for lunch.  

Next up the total MAGIC of WOW!  And WOW it was totally amazing and MAGICAL and inspirational.  We loved it!!! Surprised by some of the results (ehem weird blue and orange computer man), we must say but loved it all.  The levels and layers of entertainment are truly unbelievable and we will most definitely be back again in 2015. 

Check out some of the amazing photos and the winners for 2014 on the WOW facebook page.   

Out of Shed 6 on the wharf and into a cab for the drive to the St James Theatre for the true MAGIC of The Sound of Music.  It was AMAZING, I just couldn't help myself singing along.  A true credit to everyone involved in the amazing performance.  So grateful the taxi man let us know it was on!!  

Day two began with Brunch at Floraditas and a real explore of the shops in Cuba Mall.  A coffee in the secret garden at Olive  yet another highlight.  The rest of the day was filled with retail therapy (we are getting pretty good at that!!!), gelato on the waterfront and relaxing in the sun!  Even managed a moment at the Polish plaque on the waterfront....

What a truly MAGICAL 33 hours in WOWington...
