Flying from Sidney to Christchurch I was wondering what the South Island would look like from the sky, maybe a strip of snowy peaks emerging from the Ocean and clouds. I love the Ocean, the Ocean is my favourite place in the wolrd. To me, a land emerging from the Ocean is a wonder, imagine seeing it from the skies, being the skies my second favourite place in the world.
It was nothing like that. Too many clouds you know. But when I was able to see the land eventually, it was barren mountains and a very long river in a bed of grey gravel. I thought, I finally made it to Edoras.
Of course I had made it to Edoras.
