Good that Frodo and Sam did not start their journey by checking the flights from Gisbourne: Surprising destinations they have on offer.

However: The King is ready to return.

Once again the lovely runway 27 was selected by ATC...

Bye, bye Gisborne. May your wineyards carry many fruits when we return.

Waikaremoana Lake. Man, do these places have names.

Taupo with its "boiling grounds" - geothermal energy sources.

And here we see, surrounded by clouds...

Drop the ring, Frodo!

And now let us hurry away before any explosion may occur.

Survived, just to have an eagle-like peaceful flight down the west coast...

... towards Wellington.

Another great place of this planet, it seems.

That was it. Simply flown in and out. Boromir would be surprised.

Gerold, when you started Tolkien, I thought those names had a familiar ring to them!:wacko::wacko:

Super images and narration, thanks for the tour.

Thank you Joe. When flying over the scenery so well chosen by Peter jackson I simply HAD to write something related...

nice shots, and always good to see a bit of geology

Thank you Jankees. I always enjoy to discover these details in the sceneries - thanks to the scenery provider (you know who).

Love the shots with the LOTR references!

You are welcome... "Mt. Doom" is also much easier to write than "Mt. Ngauruhoe"... :D

Fantastic shots Gerold, but the guy with the knit cap looks a little scary. :D

Indeed Adam. I do not know if he just was downgraded from business class or forced to sit next to his mother-in-law.

Thank you TT! I am short on new-Zealand-liveries now that OZx is down (and free searches on Avsim for "King", "Kingair", "KA200" or even "Carenado" gave too many irrelevant results), so I had to use the touris from Queensland.

Good to read that my little story rings a bell with you. I would need to check if there are also ships leaving from Wellington harbour run by the elves to this beautiful land in the west?
