Even when travelling..

i couldn't resist buying books..

and yes.. it's extra weight... i had a close call at the airport when the stupid check-in guy didn't want to let my check my luggage and hand luggage through cos i packed too much stuff.

Boo hoo hoo..

in the end, everything he said was a bunch of BS. I managed to repack and brought everything back.

I love the books that i bought.

Bought at Cloudy Bay Winery, Marlborough

Wine Dogs Deluxe Edition

Wine Dogs Deluxe Edition by Craig McGill & Susan Elliott (Hardcover - Oct 1, 2004)

I love the stories and portraits of the dogs in the book. Also, it's a great souvenir of the vineyards and estates that i visited in NZ.

And this one... in Queenstown

The Lord of the Rings Location Guidebook (Lord of the Rings)

The Lord of the Rings Location Guidebook (Lord of the Rings) by Ian Brodie and Peter Jackson (Paperback - Dec 15, 2003)

It's a great book to read as it points out the exact location where the scenes of the trilogy was made. As much as i would like to visit them all, it is a bit tough to do so. Some of the sites are on private land.. and some requiring lots of travel or even via helicopter. It's nice to know that i was there where some of the scenes were shot and read about those that i was passing through. Maybe i'd get to go back to NZ again?
