I have said it before, and I will say it again... your trip is really made up by the people you meet... and today... I met someone famous!

He was really cool and down to earth (middle earth, that is) for someone who is such a big celebrity, especially in these parts!

I am of course in Taupo... which is the prettiest place... it has a massive lake (the same size as Singapore)... and some beautiful mountains...

...one of which is best known as Mount Doom...

So can you guess who I met???

My Prescious! Mine... All Mine!

Any ideas??

I met Gollum!!!

It you don't believe me... check out this picture...
(You should have seen his feet and you would have known for sure it was him!!)

As soon as we got back to the hostel... he threw himself in front of the TV... something was calling him!!!

Time for Sme Ago! <Smeagol... ok sh*t pun... put simply ... time for me to go!>

Stay tuned though my hobbits... I have the mother of all blogs coming up!
I am so excited at the moment... and can not wait to share this one with you!

Your Prescious - Bees Out!
