Concerning Hobbits

If you drive just 2.5 hour south of Auckland you may find yourself in Hobbiton.

We went on a short road trip for our 5th wedding anniversary. Nana and Poppa got to look after the baby for a day while we enjoyed a damp visit to the set of Hobbiton. The good thing about the wet weather is that our tour group only had 10 people in it :)

The tour is about 2 hours long and worth doing, especially if you are a fan of Tolkien's tales.
We even got to drink a beer in the Green Dragon!
