The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Happy Hobbit Day! 🙂

And thus this photo journey needs, with a view from Lake Te Anau in the spirit of  “journeys yet to be taken” and a few thoughts.

“An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered.” (G.K. Chesterton)

“Our life is like a land journey: too even and easy and dull over long distances across the plains, too hard and painful up the steep grades; but on the summits of the mountain, you have a magnificent view – and feel exalted – and your eyes are full of happy tears – and you want to sing – and you wish you had wings! And then – you can’t stay there, but you must continue your journey – you begin climbing down the other side, so busy with your footholds that your summit experience is forgotten.” (Lloyd Douglas)  IMG_0768
