Hobbiton - The Shire | Literary Locations
On the occasion of Bilbo and Frodo's shared birthdays, I traveled to The Shire in Hobbiton to see what all the fuss was about. It was a beautiful place, with thriving tourism. The tour guides are a little rushy-rushy, but I learnt that you can make them blush and mumble when you point at something unrecognizable outside of a Hobbit hole and ask, "What is that phallic-shaped object?" All in all, it was a glorious outing and I highly recommend a visit to Hobbiton.
