The New Zealand currency is in the news again as it has broken below .70 to the US$, making new 5 year lows in the process. It makes a visit to The Shire just that much more affordable right now for anyone based in US dollars. The Australian dollar has fared better recently, though that just means it hasn’t fallen as fast in recent months.
P.S. For those unaware, “The Shire” reference above refers to the re-creation of the fictional place where parts of Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of The Rings” trilogy took place, as a movie set in New Zealand where they were filmed.
