Spent a great time yesterday at Hobbiton which is where parts of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Trilogies were filmed. It is set on a sheep farm where the farmer had the foresight to keep the set and is now making a packet from it ……. although commercialised it’s well organised with a guide moving us on through “The Shire” finally ending up at The Green Dragon for a complementary drink (who are they kidding? We already paid for it in the entrance fee!) Despite the cynicism, I still thoroughly enjoyed the experience, shamelessly playing the tourist, and would recommend it as a ‘not to miss’ if you visit NZ. Sadly, this is my last night in New Zealand before moving on to Fiji but still have more posts to put up re. my visit here so watch this space.
