3.1.0 - The Weir House

Sunrise over Auckland
Clouds over Wellington

Weir House Dorms

We arrived in Wellington about 3 hours ago, and are all settled in to our new living accommodations in the Weir House, a freshman dorm room at the University of Victoria, Wellington. The rooms are actually really nice; a lot bigger than what we had at tech.

The weather has been kinda crazy since we arrived in NZ. Wellington is on the southern tip of the north island, so its a strange combination of cold and coastal. The winds today are hitting up to 120km per hour (75mph), and there is a slight chill that comes along with rain thats falling. The rest of the day is going to be dedicated to two things: unpacking and sleeping. The plane ride over was just over 13 hours through the dead of night, and I didn't sleep a wink. Davis and Maggie got to sit in the back of the plane and could huddle for warmth, while I was up front just trying to get a little bit comfortable.

Despite all the insanity that came with a travel day that lost us all of Saturday, its good to finally be in New Zealand. Now I'm going to bed.
