Mike and I got the chance to visit Hobbiton, the actual set of such films as The Hobbit, and The Lords of The Ring. The film set is situated outside a little town called Matamata in the central North Island of New Zealand.
It was a surreal experience and it was a well worth the trip. The rolling green pastures, miniature vegetable gardens, and the little hobbit holes in the hills followed by complimentary refreshments at the 'Green Dragon ' tavern ticked all the right boxes. To all the Tolkien fans out there, visiting Bilbo's home in the shire is a must. Be ready for a true middle earth experience in little old New Zealand!
