Day 307 - Raglan - Auckland, New Zealand

Day 307 – 11th April 2006 +11:00 GMT Total Miles 60713

Checked out the hostel and was on the road by 10am, drove North and got to Auckland just after 12pm. We checked into another fantastic hostel called Verandahs.
Met the owner Campbell and he showed us around and said he will give us a night or two for free. Then as we were unloading the car he asked if we wanted to be in a film. We said Yes why not and 10 minutes later we were in a bar and being extra’s in a few scenes for a film being produced for the Canadian and New Zealand film festival. We were told we would not get paid but could have free drinks from the are all day. The first scene we had to hang around in a bar and the next scene we had to rock out to a band, which were actually really good. Anyway the film was called “The Expat” and is a love story between a Canadian girl and a Kiwi man. When we had finished being filmed we went for a walk along k road and bought tickets for The International Noise Conspiracy gig on Thursday. We went back to the hostel for a while to chill out. In the evening we had a walk around the city centre and visited the Casino, like usual I won on Blackjack so we treated ourselves to the cinema and saw “The Inside Man” a great Spike Lee film.
