Five Fictional Islands I Wish I Could Visit In Real Life

A little while ago I was invited to take part in this huge collaboration called Hyrule: See the sights, hear the sounds. It was organised by Matt over at Normal Happenings, who wanted to create a massive, travel type guide to the Legend of Zelda universe, so of course I had to get involved – travel and geekery is my thing after all. Everyone was … Continue reading Five Fictional Islands I Wish I Could Visit In Real Life

James Bond in London | 10 Exciting Experiences You’ll Want to Try

London has always played an important part in the James Bond franchise. Not only is it home of the MI6 Headquarters and 007 himself, but Bond creator Ian Fleming was born there and took a lot of inspiration from the capital for his books.

Mad Hatters Tea Party | The Garden Society

Tea with Alice at The Garden Society I always see these fun events advertised on Facebook, but they’re usually up in London – which can be a bit of a mission to get to from Portsmouth. Very occasionally, something a little closer to home catches my eye, and when that happens I freak out and book tickets straight away. In this instance, it was an Alice … Continue reading Mad Hatters Tea Party | The Garden Society

Five Fictional Hotels I’d Like to Stay in

Last Monday I wrote about the fictional cities I’d love to visit, and since today is National Napping Day, I thought I’d dedicate this weeks fictional five to the buildings where you’re guaranteed a good night’s sleep – hotels. Hotels have been the setting for many movies over the years, most noticeably in the horror genre. In fact, The Overlook hotel in The Shining is … Continue reading Five Fictional Hotels I’d Like to Stay in

10 Most Inspiring Women In Pop Culture

Today is International Women’s Day, so I thought I’d pay homage to some of the most inspiring, kick ass ladies in pop culture. I picked these particular women, not just for their kill counts, but because they manage to carry on in the face of adversity. Some have lost loved ones, some have suffered with mental illness, but they have all overcome their issues, and … Continue reading 10 Most Inspiring Women In Pop Culture
