Having had our plans of taking the train up the East coast to Kaikoura and then Blenheim scuppered due to the recent earthquake in Kaikoura we flew to Blenheim and then headed to Nelson. It’s been a few years since I have been here but not much has changed – this is fine by me. Highlight from my perspective was seeing the art/fashion from the 2016 WOW (World of Wearable Art Show held in Wellington but originally held in Nelson – now there is a museum housing past outfits). If you’ve never been to the actual event – make sure you visit Wellington when it is on – it is always sold out and deservedly so.
Here are some examples of what you would see but you also have to imagine it on a huge stage with lots of things to look at and amazing music – it is one of the best things I’ve ever seen (twice).
