Annette Gisbyabout this book: The Hobbit movie is coming soon. Do you remember the magic when you saw the first Lord of the Rings trailers? Do you want to relive some of that same magic before you see The Hobbit?
Then, New Zealand with a Hobbit Botherer is the book for you. We'd always wanted to go to New Zealand and hadn't quite got around to it before we saw the Lord of the Rings films. Once we'd seen that scenery on the big screen, there was no doubt about it, we had to get to New Zealand somehow!
So we saved and saved and finally we got to go on our trip of a lifetime, almost a month driving around New Zealand. The book is the story of our trip as John tried his best to see New Zealand and I tried to see Middle Earth. New Zealand was a magical place, even without Hobbits and Elves.
We bought a very useful road atlas, which had all of the Lord of the Rings film locations marked on it by a gold ring so we found places we didn't even know existed. Most of the time we did our own thing, but we also went on organised tours with other Hobbit Bothers in Queenstown and Wellington as well as other places. I was a bit of teacher's pet when the guides were asking the questions about the films and DVD extras and I knew the answers! I'm not sure I'd know them all today, maybe some revision is in order. What a hardship it would be to watch those films and read the books again - not really!
