The group traveled to Rotorura where we were given a free day. During this time, we split up and part of the group went to Hobbiton and part of the group went Luging. Both Tristan and I journeyed to Hobbiton where we were exposed to the movie set and the shire itself. Hobbiton was very interesting and was a truly beautiful place. The group who went Luging all said they had a great time and were able to shop after their excursion. After convening we finally made it to our accommodation for the night, The Backyard Inn.
We as a group would really like to honor Dr. Pleger for all his efforts in getting us here. He valued Travel as a great way to broaden student’s horizons and open their eyes to all that the world has to offer them. Thank you to him for pushing for this trip and for valuing the students not only on campus but the students that are traveling the globe in support of furthering their education.
