If your familiar at all with the Lord of the Rings books or films, or even just the internet in general then your probably going to love this small tribute to J.R.R. Tolkien’s work by Google in their Maps product. Playing on the internet meme of the same name, Google Maps will simply tell you “One does not simply walk into Mordor”. Here’s how to do it:
- Go to Google Maps
- Select Get directions, with walking as your method of travel
- Put your starting point as ‘The Shire’, and your final destination as ‘Mordor’
- You should then get the warning “Use caution – One does not simply walk into Mordor.”
Here’s a linked example for the lazy.
