    At first I thought it was Matmata and wondered how the name of a Tunisian village could be duplicated in NZ! Matmata is actually as green as Matmata is dry!

    Bakery sounds wonderful. I could use the beauty treatment! The Tin Dog Info Center is a "riot"! Your Kaimai Ranges photo is so mystical, Rosie. Hobbit Holes--spectacular scenery in The Hobbit movies, so this area must be too.

    I visited here often as a child but no Hobbiton back then:-( Oh I remember driving around the Kaimi's and the gorges. I must go down there next time I'm home.
