Where is Middle-Earth?
In Iceland they speak Icelandic. I used Google Translate to look up some phrases to hear how they talk. It sounds like how someone from Middle-Earth would speak. There is a unique accent when someone from there speaks.
The Icelandic culture has been shaped by the extreme forces of nature there, just how I imagined Middle-Earth to be.There was a lot of sheep there, at one point they outnumbered people 4 to 1, so many people were shepherds. Working in agriculture was another popular occupation.
Iceland is the perfect Middle-Earth!

The Misty Mountains where the dwarves, Bilbo, and Gandalf go.
This is like the cave that the goblins and Gollum live.
These hills are where I imagine the Hobbit hills to be located.

This looks like Gollum might have lived.
