Travel: Hobbiton Movie Set


"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit." With the release of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, New Zealand became known as the home of Middle-earth. I was fortunate enough to live in this country with incredible sceneries that look straight out of a painting or in this case, a striking similarity to J.R.R. Tolkien's myth lore. I've seen the movies and BTS videos including all extended versions during a binge-watch with the family on Christmas eve. I only read The Hobbit, which I got from a book sale in Manila. Although the films were shot around New Zealand, stepping foot in the rolling hills of The Shire was a fairytale come to life.
