Where I stayed
I read an October 7, 2012 article in the New York Times by Brookes Barnes and Michael Cieply after they visited New Zealand and some of the Hobbit film locations. They describe about NZ:
"the hill is perfect - steep, shaggy and as green as a radioactive shamrock, like the matching hills around it. The sheep seem pretty idyllic themselves: polite little nibblers who only sometimes block the road"
Our experience completely! They also declare, "to the surprise of almost everyone, (LOTR) took possession of an entire country". It is a bit of a travellers' obsession seeing the spots of where filming took place and reveling experiencing the beauty depicted in these fabulous movies.
We have watched the trilogy since being here and can hardly wait to see The Hobbit!
A teaser for upcoming postings...Jim lost 'his precious'...sort of. What does that mean? You will have to wait to hear about this.
