After visiting family in SoCal, we flew from LAX to Auckland, NZ. We arrived safely in Auckland on Monday morning, got our luggage, rented our car, and then headed south to Matamata, where we will tour Hobbiton on Tuesday morning. Today was a time to get oriented–right hand drive, driving on the left side of the road, and staying alert after a 13 hour flight. As we drove along, we easily imagined the Riders of Rohan galloping across the countryside.
