I'm a 37-year old Seattle girl who was bitten by the travel bug on my first tour of Europe in 2004. This personal blog follows my attempts to visit as many countries as I can, as often as my budget will allow. Since starting this blog in 2007, I've also worked as a freelance copywriter for an online travel publication. This only served to add even more must-see locations to my already extended list.
I ran across an article today on NYT's Travel page. It shed some light on a new type of travel package that, I must admit, fascinates me. They call it Set-Jetting, and its theme is entirely centered around films. Movie fans are buying the tickets and heading out to visit shooting locations and sets of their favorite films. This clever marketing theme is offered all over the world, but some countries have benefited more than others. The "Lord of the Rings" trilogy single-handedly revived New Zealand's tourism industry, and Britain is seeing people flock to learn more about "Elizabeth", "Pride and Prejudice", "Bridget Jones" and many more. Since the only thing I love more than traveling is movies, this seems ideal for me! Check out the current package details at Visit Britain.
