Hobbiton.

DSC_0472_2

I have just returned from a 3 week trip to Australia and New Zealand. It was so much fun but I am happy to be home and sleeping in my own bed! While I have so many amazing things that I am going to share with you, I want to start with my favorite night of the trip- the evening we spent in Hobbiton. Oh yes, it’s real. And if you are anything like me- you are obsessed with the magic of these incredible films. Being there made me relive the fun and fantasy all over again. If you have a chance to go to the North island of New Zealand, don’t miss this one of a kind attraction!
