Exciting news… I’m heading back to London this coming March from the 15th -29th as a 40th birthday celebration and am planning on hitting up several Bond related locales. For those of you who don’t know, I actually lived in the UK (from 1988-1998) and went to school in London which is really where the whole of my Bond fanaticism originated with going to a special preview screening of Goldeneye, two weeks before it was officially released in 1995, although I had been introduced to Bond several years before.
I’m already planning on going to the Bond In Motion exhibit at the London Film Museum, partake in a martini or two at the Dukes Bar in Mayfair (which apparently is where Fleming got his inspiration for the famous Vesper), might pop over to Buckingham Palace to see if Gustav Graves is parachuting in, check in on the MI6 building to make sure that Silva hasn’t blown it up again, and a few other surprises. Oh and if any fellow CBNers might be around in London at the same time, I would certainly be up for a meetup! I look forward to taking lots of photos and sharing them here!
As Barbara Broccoli would say, “Watch this space!”…LOL Cheers!
