Yes, folks, it really does exist:
And, yes, that is me poking my head out of a hobbit home in Hobbiton, New Zealand.
My husband and I are in Matamata, North Island, New Zealand for the next two weeks. Imagine my content surprise when I realized that Hobbiton was only a bus ride away. I don’t care that it cost $75NZ to get in. It was worth it. And so was the overpriced swag at the gift shop.
Though Biblo’s home was awesome to visit, the Green Dragon was the highlight of the trip for me. I had me some hard cider and an amazing scone beneath the eyes of a green dragon.
I have more pictures of this amazing movie set and will post when I get back.
Have an incredible journey,
