It's been a long while since I last posted anything. Been terribly busy - after Jakarta, it was time to head to Auckland. However, last weekend, I managed to head to Matamata - the Hobbiton town. I wasn't sure what to expect, but the tour was pretty cool. Our group was rather small - only 5 of us since it was the earliest time slot. Our tour guide was fantastic - she could really tell us lots from the LOTR trilogy. The weather was beautiful that day and the tour included sheep shearing and feeding a little lamb. So here are some pics (no touch ups at all) - the view of the Hobbit dwellings, view from Bilbo's house, the Pretty Tree and Bilbo Baggins' party site.
