The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
DAY TWELVE ~ FAVORITE LOCATION
Ooooh, let me see.... I love Gondor- it is so majestic; Rohan is fantastic because it is the land of the Horse Lords (I LOVE horses). Lothlorien is gorgeous and I've always wanted to live in trees, the Lonely Mountain and the Mines of Moria are astounding in their sheer grandeur, Hobbiton is fun and cheerful... but I think my top favorite location in Middle Earth is Rivendell, also known as Imladris.
It is the home of Lord Elrond and his family, including his daughter Arwen, sons Elladan and Elrohir, elven warrior Glorfindel and Councilor Erestor. Aragorn was raised there and it had a special place in his heart.
It has an 'old' feel- as though it is full of history, but it also has an uplifting atmosphere- when you enter the Valley your cares seem less and your heart lighter. And it has waterfalls!!!
Of all the places in Middle Earth, it would be my first choice of place to live.
