“There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something…You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.”
Wishing all a very Happy New Year 2019 and may it be exciting, adventurous and filled with laughter, love and luck! Above all, let it be full of pleasant surprises, like the dialogue (mentioned above) from “Hobbit” reflects.
Many of you must be familiar with either the book ‘Hobbit’ or its blockbuster movies The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. I am a big fan of the Hobbit movies and was so thrilled to visit its set at New Zealand in 2016. I took maybe over 1000 pics of the place (my record best in 4 hours)! I am now wondering why I never wrote anything about one of my favourite place?! So, this post is to set the mistake right, and give you a truthful insight into ‘Hobbiton’!
How To Reach?
What Makes It Remarkable?
The ‘Hobbiton Movies Set’ at New Zealand was actually the movie set for the ‘Hobbit’’s first movie, however, after the movie was made they didn’t dismantle the whole thing and converted it into this amazing walk-though fun place. Its remarkable to see that how much hard-work goes into making a movie, and you can see it in each and every detail.

So, we say adieu here with this interesting words from one of my favourite books ‘Hobbit’, “In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.”
