Day 3 - The land of the Hobbits

A travel blog entry by whipbird


... away waiting for us tourists to leave so they can bring in the washing, or pick those vegetables before it rains. Here's the place where Gandalf and Bilbo yarned. Here's where Sam's actual children ran out to meet him. There's real vegetable gardens, dried (fake, I think) fish swing and spin in the wind, smoke wisps from chimneys dotting the grassy slopes. Then our visit is coming to an end and we cross the bridge and enter the Green Dragon Inn ...

Doubtful Sound Wilderness Tour

A travel blog entry by phil100652


We keep hearing about the horrendous weather and floods back home so feel a bit guilty saying today was another scorcher. We got up early to be picked up at 7am and taken on our tour. The first part was a bit stop and start so we were both thinking 'This is going to be a long day!' but it quickly improved and the cruise along Doubtful Sound as far as the Tasman Sea and back was superb. The amazing fjords of rainforest clad mountains sandwiched between beautiful blue sky ...
