... office. Quite a smart little ploy really.

In Paihia there is a famous historical site called the Waitangi Treaty Grounds. The Waitangi Treaty is the document that set the foundation for the colonisation of New Zealand by the British Empire. The site is the spot where the Maori Chiefs met with the British Representative to sign the Treaty Document in 1840.

Hobbiton was excellent - the sun was shining, and the set is just as you see it on the screen! I loved wandering around the hobbit holes, gardens and pub set in the gorgeous rolling valleys of the Waikato with Alex and her little boy. Our guide was lacking enthusiasm, so even though he told us ...
