This Big Blend Radio podcast (pre-recorded prior to the COVID-19 quarantine), features travel writer Debbie Stone who shares her adventures in Hobbiton in New Zealand, the famed movie set home of author J.R.R. Tolkien's hobbits. The Hobbiton Movie Set is a must for fans of "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings" trilogies. It's the country's only set left from the movies and attracts nearly 650,000 tourists and wannabe hobbits a year. The site is near the village of Matamata, about 110 miles southeast of Auckland on New Zealand's North Island. It's actually part of a working sheep farm, owned by the Alexander family.
