OK, take the next 13 minutes off to watch this video - it's the latest video blog by Peter Jackson, director of The Hobbit, which can't come soon enough (set for Christmas 2013, ugh!).

After watching this, I'm definitely booking a trip to New Zealand as part of my personal bucket list and taking the Lord of the Rings tour.
