After escaping from our bad house sitting experience we were very excited to get out and explore the North island of New Zealand. One of the places we headed to was Hobbiton. We were not the only ones to have this idea, in fact the place was swarming with tourists. I had visited the film set prior to the Hobbit movies and felt that the visit was better then. This time we were shuffled around and could only take photographs on the move. On the plus side they have now created a real life Green Dragon and you can see us enjoying some of the cider there in this film:
You will be pleased to hear that Pinion was allowed to leave the film set despite going in full Hobbit costume, hairy toes and all!
