Carolyn Webb (Baizdon Ace Researcher and Official City of London Tour Guide) and I go to the Promote Iceland event at One Aldwych where we try lots of Icelandic food and cocktails (we both liked the ‘Blue Lagoon’ best - even though it was actually green), discover how many films have been shot in the country (loads) and see a special showing of ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ at One Aldywch’s luxurious screening room. The film was wonderful, it immediately wanted me to go back to Iceland! Do go and see the movie and something to remember is that although Walter visits Iceland, Greenland and Afghanistan in the film, in reality all the location shots were filmed in Iceland and yes, it is that beautiful and that extraordinary.
After the event we had champagne in One Aldwych courtesy of the fabulous Mark Tucker, we sat beside a splendid Charlie-and-the-Chocolate-Factory themed Christmas tree. All round a perfect evening.
