Pictures of Wellington, NZ

Just being in Wellington is good for the soul. Everywhere you go you're surrounded by beauty, yet the wonderfully wild natural environment never lets you get too dreamy about it.

Within a short walk from a buzzing urban environment you can be deafened by birdsong in a lush forest. Everywhere you are, you can smell the ocean. There is nowhere you can be that isn't a few steps from a view of the bush.

Wellington has world class mountain biking, windsurfing, kayaking, hiking or ocean swimming a few minutes from the office. What did you do at lunchtime?
