Last summer, my students and I read The Hobbit together. It had been 30 years since I’d read it. I have to admit, I reveled in the classic story, long buried in my brain under years of reading. As you know, it is a classic tale of a quest; a long, life-changing journey. The travelers have to battle (and avoid) various creatures, traverse extraordinarily vast plains, wend their way through mountain paths, and pursue their quest across Middle Earth.

My Real-Life Shire Adventure

Are you a Lord of the Rings fanatic that dreams of seeing the well-known Middle Earth? Well, you most certainly are not alone and I’m here to tell you that it is just as magical in real-life as it is in the movies! Okay, well maybe not really quite as magical due to all the digital editing, but it still is a place that without a doubt will take your breath away.
