My wife and I recently had a day in London and we went along to the Bond in Motion exhibition at the London Film Museum in Covent Garden. I’m a huge James Bond fan so I was in my element looking at the iconic cars from the movies such as the Aston Martin DB5 which first made an appearance in Goldfinger back in 1964, the Lotus Esprit S1 from The Spy Who Loved Me which famously transformed into a submarine when driven into the sea and many more.
We spent a good couple of hours perusing a whole array of props and it was a great insight into exactly what goes in to making these incredible movies. The attention to detail is quite staggering. We finished the evening with a lovely meal at the Ivy Market Grill before heading home. We contemplated a trip to the casino but having to juggle work and two quite demanding young boys we were a little too tired. Occasionally I will play online via a safe and secure online casino.
Visiting the exhibition brought back so many happy memories. I was brought up on Bond, it’s quintessentially British. I often dream of being Bond. I took a trip to the Bahamas a few years ago and just so happened to be staying on Paradise Island which was used as a location for the 2006 movie Casino Royale. Furthermore, and by sheer coincidence (I promise), the resort I was staying at was right next to the One and Only Ocean Club resort which featured in the movie. It was great knowing that I was literally walking in the footsteps of Daniel Craig and I couldn’t resist strolling up to the bar one evening and ordering myself a vodka martini, shaken, not stirred of course.
