My Journey through Middle-Earth

LOTR 2.JPGWith the recently released blockbuster film "The Hobbit", I am reminded of the trip I took to New Zealand a few years ago, a location that was used to film the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. I was there for about a week and was able to travel to different cities on the south island. I explored the city of Christchurch, hiked Fox Glacier, and toured Cadbury World in Dunedin. However, I think the most memorable experience for me was Queenstown. While many partook in more extreme activities in this "Bungee Capital of the World", I opted for the more scenic route and took a Lord of the Rings tour.

LOTR 1.JPGI remember incredible scenery throughout the tour as the guide took me to see the Remarkables--the mountain range that served as Middle-Earth's Misty Mountains, Lake Wakatipu--a backdrop to several scenes in the trilogy, the location for the forest of Lothlorien, and other breathtaking sites.

Although pictures just don't do it justice, I've included some here. If given the chance to go again, I would in a heartbeat.

There are a variety of Best Western hotels in this country so if you're thinking of a new place to explore, I highly recommend New Zealand as a place to see!

    Traveling to Peterborough On. with wife and foster children to visit our kids who live there. The hotel management gave us a huge suite at the same price and the kids just loved it, they had there own room, tv and we loved the peace and quiet as well. Just made a family visit so much more memorable for all. Thanks to the staff.
