What travelers to Wellington are saying

We were in Wellington for a conference afterwhich we toured the rest of the country. Wellington is a very walkable city. We enjoyed the Te Papa museum, the cable car and especially Zealandia. We had many good meals in Wellington. We enjoyed walking down Cuba Street and did so many evenings to find a restaurant. We just wish internet were more easily and economically available...finding free wifi was our biggest hassle.
