Guys, guys, guys !
We went to Hobbiton. I feel it is almost criminal to go to New Zealand and not go to the rolling hills of The Shire. We are massive nerds and we loved every bit of it. I read The Hobbit when I was about 8 and The Lord of the Rings when I was 12 so I was raring to go.
It was expensive (about $79 each) so maybe decide how much you love the books/films before you go but t was beautiful there any felt like the Welsh hills of the UK.
Here's us being 'filthy Hobbit-sis'
Some sketches to follow :D
