When in Wellington you gotta take a walk down Cuba St. Feel the vibe and check out the great eateries!

Inside Weta Cave, a heaven for movie buffs and collectors.

If you're a fan of movies, Weta Cave and Workshop is a must visit. Also good for aspiring artists looking to get into the movie industry. The Workshop tour was insightful and interesting but strictly no photos in case anything from a current/future project is leaked. Of course Lord of the Rings is their biggest fame but they've been involved in many films just as famous. Outside the entrance these 3 trolls from The Hobbit are there for your photographing and posing pleasure.

If you're in Wellington Cuba Street is a street you must walk down for the food hunt. On Friday nights from 5-11pm slip into a side lane and you will find it comes alive. Welcome to Wellington Night Market. Food focussed, good variety.

Time to head to Rivendale. It is literally sign posted on the highways right to the location as Rivendell. They've kept it as a tourist attraction with movie trivia info.

More Lord of the Rings location hunting. This is in one of the forests in Upper Hutt. Here's this mega fan reenacting the scene where the hobbits were hiding from the ringwraith. If you are interested there is a website fully dedicated to it - google LOTR locations NZ.

The best museum in New Zealand they say. I didn't go to any others to compare but this was really good. Free entry but you have to pay for special exhibitions. If you're interested in history you could spend hours going through the levels.
Wellington Harbour looking mighty fine in the evening โคโค. I am loving this city

Hello Windy Wellington! It is definitely super windy here. Pretty cool city with a huge foodie scene. Somehow it reminded me of San Francisco too!

Mount Taranaki and the Rainbow! It definitely helps to hire a car in New Zealand because points of interests are far apart and not easily accessible without a car sometimes.

Trekking in Dawson Falls, Egmont National Park. I probably don't recommend it in winter on a rainy day because you need to cross the waterfalls, the RUNNING waterfalls whereby the water level is high at the moment. We managed to get across TWICE without slipping. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

A stop at Te Rewa Rewa Bridge in New Plymouth. It was super cloudy and raining that day I had to wait a while for at least a bit of sunlight to appear. Not much else around here, just a walking trail but thought the bridge looked quite unique. On a clear day you can see Mount Taranaki in the background
If you're driving down towards New Plymouth area, I highly recommend stopping by Mike's Brewery for a beer tasting. Excellent beers and they don't export it so NZ is the only place to try them.

The incredibly gorgeous and calm Lake Taupo. It's a small town with not much to do but it was our 2 night stop just to relax and take in all the fresh air we can.

Icy waterfall. I can't remember exactly what this place was called but this is the spot used to shoot Gollum's Pool in LOTR. It's a bit frozen at the moment but still a beautiful sight. Just be careful going down as it is wet and not very even. It was raining that day and could've easily slipped.
