I may have mentioned it in a previous post but I’ll say it again, I have a bit of a crush on the travel company, Black Tomato.
What have they done to earn such esteem in my heart? This time it’s their themed trips ‘Set Jetting‘ where you can galavant off on a trip based on your favorite TV show – if it happens to be Game of Thrones, The Bridge (I don’t know this show, do you?), Downton Abbey, Mad Men, Lost or Breaking Bad.
Personally, I’d choose Downton Abbey – tour Highclere Castle, visit Oxfordshire, the Cotswolds and London. And tea! And cake! And clay pigeon shooting! Ok, I’m getting carried away. But it is right up my alley. Read more about the itinerary (and the others).
I also wouldn’t mind a trip to Croatia and Iceland, though I haven’t started binge watching Game of Thrones, yet.
Where would you go if you could choose a TV (or movie) themed trip?
A gal can dream,
If you haven’t figured it out already, I’m a sucker for old movies – especially ones with a little song and dance.
I hadn’t seen White Christmas until last year which is a shame on me, since I, of course, now love it. Whether you’re a lover of old movies or not, hopefully you’ll still find some gift inspiration from today’s Gift Guide.
Quick story synopsis :: Two WWII veterans, now famous performers, follow a sister act duo to Vermont where they run into their former General from the war – struggling to make ends meet at his inn. They scheme to put on a show at the inn to help him out but of course there’s love, singing and dancing along the way. Or you simply need to know that it stars Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney!
