For my boyfriend’s birthday this year I got him a trip to Hobbiton. Six months later and we finally went.
We arrived late in Matamata the first night, so just watched a little TV and slept. We got up late the next morning, had an amazing breakfast and went on the tour. Everything was so well made and although we had a large group the tour still ran quite well, ending with a drink at The Green Dragon Inn. We then drove back to Auckland, where we relaxed with our movie and popcorn package until going to the casino for 20 minutes – pokies are boering – then on to dinner at The Grill by Sean Connelly. Although expensive, it was divine. We relaxed the rest of the night watching movies, and chilling out. Sunday, we had a yummy brunch at the Federal Delicatessen, did a little shopping and drove home. It was such a relaxing weekend, especially since I had taken the Monday off of work. I can’t wait til our next weekend away.
