Day 8 - National Park to Wellington

This was going to be the longest day of driving yet with around 400km to cover but there was still some time to see the sights along the way.

My main activity for the day was war. The National Army Museum in Waiouru that is.

The museum was quite interesting and well presented. I also learned quite a few new things about the history of New Zealand.

The drive itself while long was also full of nice spots to stop and take in the views. The winding stretch of road following a river between Raetihi and Whanganui was especially scenic.

I arrived in Wellington just in time for a sunset stroll and a nice pint of beer.
