Three Things You Must Do Before Spend Holiday In New Zealand

Before you spend holiday in New Zealand, do the following three things in order:
First, WATCH the Lord of the Rings (The Fellowship of the Ring) movie,
Second, ENJOY Lord Of The Ring (The Two Towers) movie,
Third, IMAGINE Lord Of The Ring (The Return Of The King) movie,
I wrote this article based on our experience. After watching, enjoying and imagining all the trilogy Lord of the Rings (LOTR) movie, we had different feelings when we were on holiday in New Zealand. We felt that our feet were stepped on Heaven of the Middle Earth, as we were in different dimension. LOTR films also encouraged us to go many new places, walked to discover new places that were impossible to get there with the vehicle. Sometimes we had to withstand the heat of the sun, cold and raining during walking. Yes, off course we need to wear clothes that protect us from unpleasant weather condition.

The following pictures we took around the LOTR filming location. If you want to stand on exact location on the scene of LOTR, the best choice is joining tour, that means you need to pay more, sometimes quite expensive. We prefer the free one and we still could see the great view, in the same time imagining that we were in the movie. For your info, the exact location of LOTR movie scattered throughout New Zealand. Some locations are in remote area, achievable only by helicopter or 4 wheel drive car (4WD) or by feet.
