... Here I was advised to do the Black water rafting! This is basically canyoning In the dark while riding a large inner tube, with abseiling and Glowworms thrown in. A very exciting experience and the first time I've seen Glowworms. A must do. Hobbiton was the thing to see the following day... And I wasn't to shore what to expect.

... from our coach did decide to go for it and fortunately for them, they did make it up to the top AND made the last coach... Incredible job guys! For once... I actually turned down a challenge. I had rejoined Flo at the base of Mount Doom and we both pushed on together, deciding we would rather enjoy the crossing at a slower pace, really taking in the spectacular views surrounding us.
