Visiting the Hobbit Houses in Baan Suan Noi

Visiting the Hobbit Houses in Baan Suan Noi

I am a fan of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings and I have long wanted to see Hobbiton in New Zealand, where some parts of the movies were shot. The otherworldly movie set, with its little houses and round doors, have always been a […]
