Our final stop of the 2015 New Zealand Road Trip revolved around Hobbiton. Mr. J, a huge Lord of the Rings fan, needed to see Hobbiton. I enjoy the movies as well, but I am not a super fan. Is it touristy? Yes. Is it commercialized? Yes. Is it amazing? Yes.
After our night in Martinborough, we headed on to Hastings. Around lunchtime, we started looking for a place to eat. What we stumbled upon was the Tui HQ Brewery.
In September 2015, we took a five day New Zealand road trip in a camper van. Our third stop was at Martinborough which gave us an unexpected surprise – wine!
After Kaikoura, we headed up to Picton for the night to catch our ferry in the morning.
Kaikoura was our first scheduled stop on our 2015 New Zealand Road Trip.
On the island of Waiheke (a 7 minute helicopter ride from Auckland), we made a stop at Cable Bay Vineyards.
