Magical day- Waitomo and Hobbiton ✨ ✨January 16, 2020 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C
Today we hired a car and drove from Auckland down to Waitomo caves to see the gloworms. The tour guide walked us down the cave to a small boat that takes you around the waters down there. Guided by ropes in complete darkness, this magical place has thousands and thousands of gloworms which looks like your looking up at the stars (green stars).
Hobbiton was.. well, one of the coolest places we've been to. If not the coolest. It was far bigger than we imagined. The surroundings of lush rolling hills and mountains in the distance. We learnt a lot of the secrets of how they set it up to contrast with the actors being hobbits or adult humans and also of the lengths that Peter Jackson and his crew went to keeping Hobbiton the same for the movies that followed the fellowship of the ring. But we're not going to tell those secrets for anyone planning a visit there. We finished our journey with a real English ale at the dragon pub. Would definitely recommend a visit to anybody going to New Zealand.Read more
