Holiday Type / Set-Jetting

Art and travel have always had a special relationship; with one influencing the other for centuries. Now, luxury travellers can truly 'lose' themselves in their favourite novel or film during their time away. Peter Jackson's blockbuster The Hobbit focused the world's eyes on New Zealand as a key destination - 'Middle-earth is closer than you think'.
