Wairarapa Wandering

I enjoyed pretty much everything. The accommodation was superb - especially liked BrakenRidge, just beautiful. Food was excellent throughout - including some amazing lunches at gardens. The dinners at Bracken Ridge were as good as one could get anywhere. The group was harmonious and we had a lot of fun. The itinerary was excellent and we saw so many interesting and beautiful places. I especially loved the Wairarapa and it was wonderful to have three nights there. Thoroughly enjoyed climbing up to the lighthouse. It was good to have choices in Wellington. I did enjoy Matt's commentary which was interesting and pertinent and not too much. Also his quizzes were fun on long stretches. I thought Stonehenge and the talk we had there were very interesting indeed - reawakened my interest in Astronomy and the ancient cultures. The gondola ride was a great finale.
