For those new to the #24hoursin world, it's a kick-ass way to explore a new city, get tips before you leave, or experience it from the comfort of your work desk. Basically @richiehardcore and I fly in, spend 24 or 48 hours in one place, and spend the whole time going and doing where and what you tell us. Tweet, Instagram, or Facebook us your #24hoursin suggestions, and we give you an honest review of it all.
This one started with checking in to the #Museumarthotel along Wellington's waterfront. It's a well known Wellington establishment, but somehow I'd never been before. But I'll definitely be going back.
Incredible art lines the walls of the reception area, and the lovely staff made sure I had an Americano in hand before I even sat down. The rooms are spacious, warm, and have that 'this should be more expensive that it really is' type feel.
Best of all, it's walking distance to everything you sent us to do in Wellington. Fidel's cafe on Cuba street had the best #vegan breakfast a girl could ask for, and Midnight Espresso will absolutely be seeing me again for their raw date and almond cacao slice. In between the eating you guys sent me to Jai Thai Boxing on Victoria Street for a sweat-session with their amazing instructors. I'm a Muay Thai enthusiast, which means I'm super keen but not necessarily all that good. But the team were welcoming and friendly, and were unfazed by my inability to throw a straight punch :)
Commonsense Organics on Wakefield street kept us stocked with coconut yogurt, bliss balls and nice blocks - which are key when you want treats that aren't packed with ridiculous amounts of added sugar. The market there is a #vegan #vegetarian #paleo #health paradise. I could have spent hours buying stuff to pack into my carry-on... but sadly the plane ride home was calling.
Anyway, Wellington, you ruled. We'll be back.
FYI - Museum Hotel very kindly put us up for the night. We believe in total transparency - so that's why we mention it. But we did also LOVE our stay!
