New Zealand Day 2 - Sky Tower and Hobbiton

05 Jun - Woke up early in the morning to visit the Sky Tower, a major attraction for the city of Auckland. At the top of the tower, visitors can have a magnificent view of the surrounding landmarks, which nonetheless, is awesome.

As we do not have much time to spare for the day, we need to move on to start our drive to Hobbiton Movie Set, which we had booked several months ago. Its interesting to see the actual place where they filmed the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Along the way, we pass by rolling hills full of cows and sheep. It is indeed that New Zealand has more cows than humans.

Welcome to The Shire 

Do remember to try the Ginger Beer they offered at the Tavern. It is the best ginger beer I have ever tasted in my whole New Zealand trip!
