Green Dragon Pub, New Zealand. #NZ #NewZealand #BucketList #Travel
Real life Hobbit pub opens in New Zealand. The Green Dragon Pub at Hobbiton, near Matamata in the North Island of New Zealand, was originally built as part of the set for The Hobbit but was opened to the public as a licensed pub in late November. I'm so there once I book a ticket.

The Green Dragon™ Inn featured in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy as the local meeting place for all the residents of Hobbiton. It was the perfect place to satisfy their thirst, enjoy a meal and gossip about the comings and goings of The Shire. The inn also makes an appearance in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

One *very* small footprint - Accommodations at Kolarbyn, Sweden, a former charcoal making forest that now operates as the “world’s most primitive hotel.”
I would have used it as a playhouse. It looks like it came from the Shire in Lord of the Rings!
