Don’t step onto the road without knowing where you might be swept off to…
I feel I’m playing the part of Gandalf here: advising all Thorin-like followers, who are embarking on an adventure to New Zealand, to utilise a most essential map on your travels.
Why you would be going to the Southern Hemisphere is anyone’s guess; but if you’re reading this particular post on this particular blog, chances are you’re doing your own Middle-earth pilgrimage.
The folks over at Travelbag.co.uk have crafted this rather handy digital map to help you on your adventures.
Travelling to the various filming locations of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit might be a challenge – especially since they’re spread out over two islands and thousands of miles in between.
The Ultimate Hobbit Map of New Zealand will aid you along your set visits – keeping you on the right track by trusty Google coordinates 😉
Avoid confusing your Mount Cook from your Mount Sunday; remember the difference between the Rangitikei River (stand-in for the Anduin river) and the Mavora Lakes (Among Hen).
Like the Company of Thorin Oakenshield, make sure you trust in the map to guide you along your way to the real Middle-earth.
I know I will – whenever that day comes. Any willing benefactors? Anyone?
Till next time 😉
