Hobbits return to New Zealand
Filming of The Hobbit has just started in New Zealand, which will doubtless lead to fresh streams of fantasy fans finding their way over to ‘Middle Earth’ to visit ‘The Shire’, ‘The Misty Mountains’ and other top tourist destinations where elves, wizards and dragons roam.

We certainly hope so!
