Lord of the rings

June 17, 2011

What does Lord of the rings by J R R Tolkien have to do with travel?

Quite a lot as most of the characters spend a substantial amount of time travelling to different locations, as it is a journey through the landscape as well as through ideas.  The travel is not fast as it is often on foot, through difficult, often threatening environments.

Another way you can explore the story is by playing Lord of the rings online, which is loosely based on the novels. This game involves lots of traveling too.
