I really have very good memories of New Zealand, such a beautiful country. I still tell friends “if one really want to see heaven on earth, visit New Zealand”. Wellington is such a beautiful city. Like taking the cable car from Lambton Quay to Weir House where I stayed in my first year. Second year, I went flatting. I used to rent a flat on The Terrace opposite Stuart Williamson house, which was a student hostel. My girlfriend was from Cambridge in the Waikato, and she was doing a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Psychology. The University of Waikato did not exist at that time.
Watching the harbour while studying at the library, what a sight. I have very fond memories of my first summertime job working as a steward on the ferries from Wellington to Picton. The pay was really good. You worked for one week and got paid for two weeks.
