An Unexpected Journey.

One of my favourite day trips of our entire journey to New Zealand was the day we spent at Hobbiton. I knew it was going to be fun to walk around the set of Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit, but I was completely unprepared for just how utterly adorable the Shire was going to be. See for yourself:

Dreaming of New Zealand

We recently returned from a five week journey through New Zealand and Australia. Australia had been on my husband’s bucket list for, well, ever. And while it was every bit as amazing as we dreamed it would be, the place that really captured our hearts was New Zealand. The scenery is impossibly beautiful, and the people are the friendliest we’ve ever met. We can’t wait to go back some day. Here are some pictures to remind us of the beautiful day we spent driving to Cape Reinga, one of the northernmost parts of New Zealand’s North Island.
