... props, costumes etc. amazing place to get to see and go behind the scenes and see how things were done. From here is was a short drive over to Stone Street Studios - Owned by Peter Jackson. These are the sites of the indoor sets and the huge green screen. It's located very close to the airport so they have to run outdoor action filming between planes taking off. The next few days in Wellington are just chill out time. Spending the days wandering the city, taking ...

... had a photo and then got back on the bus to the raft centre. From there, we travelled to Taihape to get our car. We said farewell to the French boys and got on our way. We travelled to Levin and got a motel room. It was a nice room, kitchen with a lounge area and a separate bedroom with a bathroom. We watched a film and then went to bed. 28/01/2014 Woke up after a great sleep. Had a shower and breakfast then we made our way to Wellington. We arrived in Wellington at 11.30am, in ...
