Just arrived back in windy Wellington, NZ. There are some great views of the city from Mt. Victoria, especially at night as all the lights twinkle the city seems so small from up here.
This is the entrance to the Green Dragon pub in Hobbiton, its easy to imagine some drunken hobbits staggering out after a night of drinking.
Tuk-Tuks are everywhere in Bangkok, they are 3 wheeled motorized vehicles and are pretty good for shorter journeys as they can weave in and out of the traffic. Although if you are visiting some tourist attractions they will try to take you to some souvenir shops. They get fuel coupons for their tuktuk and sometimes get a commission on what you end up buying or even just for getting you to enter the shop!
