I would love to [In reply to] Can't Post

Most of my family ancestry is English/Scottish/Welsh, so I would love to visit all of those countries. I finally got the chance to go to England earlier this year, but was only there long enough to go to London and Bath (which were great of course). And yes, I have seen Brave, as well as various other movies and books that take place in Scotland, which of course makes me want to visit all the more!

I think we need to set up a TORn cultural exchange program - you come visit me in my country, I'll come visit you in yours. Smile

Ah, Bath... *sighs at the very thought of the city* [In reply to] Can't Post

Such an inspiring place - I went there a few years ago and visited Glastonbury. Such a na´eve little girl I had been... I now realise I take loads of things for granted (I never realised just how many people wanted to come to Scotland because of its history and fabulous landscapes until going online and learning about it in school).

And to think I have never actually been to London after all these years... Laugh

.....The King of Carven Stone
..The King Under the Mountain
.......Shall come into his own

..And the bells will ring in gladness
......At the Mountain King's return
..But all shall fail in sadness
....And the lake will shine and burn

Sigh indeed [In reply to] Can't Post

Yeah, I just had to see Bath after reading about it in Jane Austen novels and seeing it in various movies. Unfortunately, I could only squeeze in a day trip, so didn't have a lot of time to explore, but I'm so glad I went. I did manage to hit most of the big touristy places in London, which again was just so cool after reading about them for years/seeing in movies etc. It was pretty mind-blowing to be in places 1000 years old like the Tower - the town I live in just celebrated its 100th anniversary. Smile

The thing about Scotland that appeals to me (besides my family history) is that it's actually very similar to where I live. The nearby mountains here are very similar to the pictures you posted. And Scottish accents are my favorite. Sly

I am constantly reminded of Amon Hen whenever I am in a forest.

The Nine [In reply to] Can't Post

Some months back, there was an item of English archaeology news which was downright spooky:
"A rather extravagant *nine* previously unknown crypts have been found underneath Coventry's medieval Cathedral remains... It is thought they may have been burial vaults for noble families."
Did they find any Morgul blades, I wonder?

My Property [In reply to] Can't Post

Backs onto a large 500 acre Property, which is pretty much just paddock, and grazing land for cows. That on its own reminds me of the plains of Rohan a lot. Plus to add to the picture, we have the Blue mountains (in Sydney, not Eriador) that pretty much surround the horizon behind these paddocks, and when the sun sets behind them, and the sky is red above them, it looks a lot like mordor. The view is almost a replica of the one from TTT when Gandalf says "The battle of helms deep is over, the battle for middle earth is about to begin" I will add pictures to see what u think

"And do you really think, Thorin Oakenshield, that Bolg will have the slightest symphony for you? After he watched you hack his fathers hand off, so ruthlessly in Moria. Azogs defeat has brought nothing to you, only refuelled hate of his kin, upon yours"

Yes here recently [In reply to] Can't Post

It's been foggy every morning and it really makes me feel like I am on the Barrow Downs. I wonder sometimes when I go to feed my horses if I will get lost and wake up underground and wearing swords and rings and stuff!

Watkins Glen [In reply to] Can't Post

Watkins Glen State Park (NY State) is very lovely and I can imagine parts of it as locations in Middle-earth (such as the wilder regions of the Shire).

The highlands of Scotland [In reply to] Can't Post

Have often reminded me of the Misty Mountains when I visit. Though I am aware that there are other more impressive mountain ranges in the world, but the Highlands are an impressive range in themselves.
