Welcome to POE (Pictures of England) Lorna.

I would love to travel to New Zealand and take the Lord of the Rings tour. Maybe one day.

Enjoy your sojourn here on POE. We look forward to seeing your pictures of England, and getting to know you here on the forums.

Hi Everyone.

Sue I have seen a lot of where the Lord of the Rings was filmed - but mainly from a distance! I live about half an hour from Matamata where Hobbiton was created.

Rafal I lived in Exeter for 13 years and then moved to Taunton for 6 years before moving over here! Small world! Before that it was NZ (been here twice now!) and Bideford, North Devon before that. So have travelled around a bit!

Bill I hope your friends still enjoy living over here. Have they been back to the UK at all? This sight does make me rather homesick!!

Anna I have been to the Arts Centre once in Christchurch. That was a couple of years ago now. I am on the North Island but would love to get back down to the South again sometime.

Hi Lorna:  Welcome to POE.  Thanks for telling Marianne about it too.  If you're homesick for England, then this is a pretty nice place.  But I also hear that New Zealand is fabulous.  Enjoy yourself here, Lorna.
