In the last week or so we have met couples from Spain and Italy touring New Zealand on their respective honeymoons.
For one of the couples New Zealand was almost the furtherest place on earth so they just had to come. For the other couple our nature, the greeness of the countryside and the varied vegetation and plant life really caught their eye.
Both couples were heading for a night of culture and a hungi dinner in Rotorua via Hobbiton.
I am still amazed at the pull of Hobbiton many years after the movies have finished around the world - it seems to be on many folks list of must see attractions in New Zealand.
