I used to live here several years ago so the area is quite familiar to me. Shopping centres in Auckland
I even found the hobit house in between the shops! Ok, I have never seen the Lord of the Rings movies - don't shoot me! but these houses would have been recognized anywhere. For those of you who don't know it either, Middle-earth is the home of the hobits and the rest of the guys from Lord of the Rings.
|Botany hobit house|
|Cute chimney for a hobit fireplace|
|This little gnome was sitting inside (sorry, bad quality picture)|
|Botany Town Centre; first you are outside.....|
|...then you are inside|
|Tea time anyone?|
|Who would have thought this is a shopping centre?|
|Playground for shopping tired kids (and parents)|
|Outdoor furniture in my next life...|
Above outdoor furniture didn't come with me home this time, but it would have looked very cool in my soon- to-be garden. A bit "1001 Night" feeling....
The picture is from the furniture chain, Danske Møbler, who has a selection of Scandinavian furniture (like Ekornes). Yeah...I was daydreaming... Wakey wakey!!
