Yes it would be!! I was shocked, though. Out of her entire colege class her and one other guy were the only real LOTR fans! O_o

I just saw her pictures today, since she got back. It was really cool to see them and NZ is beautiful in general. Really wish i could go some day.

Yeah same here. My sister said that one of her co-workers and her husband are going to visit it this year. I really hope I can one day as well.

I'll have to get my wife to get the pictures from her sister and I can post them if she is ok with me posting them here. She got some really neat pictures.

I'm hoping she does!

I asked my wife yesterday if she had sent any but I don't think she has checked yet. But if I get some and the oknto post them I'll post them here. Maybe even the one short video clip she took if I can figure out how to do that. She got a videa panning around to show part of hobbiton while another guy in the group plays the shire music from the movie on his phone in the background. It was pretty cool.

I know it is a lot less convenient than having the pictures right in the post but they were too big and I usually have a lot of trouble getting them downsized without making them really small and hard to see. I don't understand the relationship between picture size and how many KBs it is... so as opposed to wrestling with this many pictures I just have the links.

These are the photos from hobiton my sister in law took and I will try and get the two videos to work below the pictures.

Nice pictures! I'm jealous as I wish I could see Hobbiton for myself. Please thank your sister-in-law for sharing them with us.

Hm... :/.

I will have to get back on my laptop and try something else. They were all working when I posted them but now my phone can not view them either. Not sure what is up.
