Dear Charlotte,

I enjoyed your post and the first time I heard about New Zealand, was probably Lord of the Rings, too. Based on my own experience, the strange thing is that most of our group members who decided to explore the Hobbiton Movie Set have never seen the movies before. They just go there because it is famous and someone told them that this location is a must-see. For me it was kind of sad, but hey, at least they won’t regret having missed it if they watch the movies sooner or later, right?
