Planning on visiting New Zealand? Can't Post

I'm sure there'll be a good number of people planning to visit NZ either for the Hobbit premier or for a holiday. So this is a good time to repost one of the most helpful bits of travel advice I've seen on TORN: A mathom from Eledhwen, who lived in NZ for a couple of years. Check our her 'things to see and do' advice here.

If you have any other questions, just ask! There are plenty of Kiwis on TORN, and others who have visited, who will be happy to help. :)

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Looking forward to January in NZ! [In reply to] Can't Post

Will be there Jan. 2-26. Hope to cover a lot of territory on both North and South Is. Thanks for the link to Eledhwen's tips, that's very helpful!
