Oooh that's great! [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you for that! That is the kind of thing I have been thinking of.

I'm definitely considering getting my techie friends to help me make something like this in google maps, so that people can drag the ME maps over the area they live to compare areas in ME with meaningful distances in their own lives. Whenever I am travelling, I find myself thinking not only of the great journeys of characters in Tolkien's universe, but also of real life journeys, and journeys in legends and mythologies.

I have recently been studying the voyages of Polynesians to New Zealand - the ancestors of the Maori - and I find it so inspiring and thought provoking to think of those individuals with all their hopes, dreams and fears when leaving their homes for new lands.

"It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door," he used to say. "You step into the Road, and if you don't keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to..."
