You are so right Thunderpussy!!

Nothing will ever top The Sound of Music for me. Julie Andrews means everything to me.

And of course my pose is meant to be that fantastic open arms gesture of Julie.  But with a Bond background  ajb007/lol  ajb007/lol

Re: What Bond locations have you been to?

I was lucky enough to have been in Jamaica at the time I think coincides with the Dr No story.Passed the North Shore locations a few times.Remember one sunday,end of April beginning of May 1949,a visit to Dunn river falls.A trip organised by my girl friend at the time, and myself.Five beautiful  white  girls,and five army personnel.Strictly no alchohol.(their parents decision)It was what was termed an introduction party..The area was deserted all that Sunday we were there, except for one couple way down the other end of the beach.So a deserted beach,with Bond the only occupant, was realistic..The road,as described by Fleming,was mainly unsealed,all the way from the turning onto the coast road after Moneague till reaching the outskirts of Montego Bay.If one passed more than two vehicles during that stretch,it was unusual.I do however disagree with the type of white female as represented by Ryder,and the circumstances of her meeting with Bond.I doubt it could happen in reality.

Re: What Bond locations have you been to?

Well, in my first year of university, I lived on Staircase 8 at New College, where Bond supposedly banged his Danish professor in TND. Nice view but the stairs are a complete pain when you have to drag your stuff up several flights.

There are just a few issues with TND's scenario:
1) Danish isn't taught at Oxford.
2) Only students live in the New Buildings, professors live on the other side of college.
3) The overhead shot of "New College" is actually Brasenose and the Rad Cam.

Looking for the Ballantyne DAD sweater in size large. Have wanted one for so many years now. PM me abuse or more preferrably sweaters for sale.

Re: What Bond locations have you been to?

Would appreciate advice on two locations.

Seriously thinking of visiting Malta this year, aware no Bond films are acknowledged of actually being filmed on the island but, keep on reading different references that island locations have been used. Can any one advise what Bond films they are and where the scene locations were filmed on the island?.

I have previously been to Gibraltar and think I located the scene locations, using screen shots from The Living Daylights but, does any one know of the actual scene locations - road names etc. Knowing the actual locations would reduce walking distances, my wife is not keen on repeating it where necessary. Any advice would be appreciated as it has taken a lot of preplanning to get my wife to even start thinking of a revisit Gibraltar.

Thank you Number 24, now amended.
 
Update: Four day trip to Gibraltar now booked for mid March. Will be going to all the main must see locations and prepping research for Bond locations but would appreciate any local knowledge if any one can help.

Re: What Bond locations have you been to?

Thoroughly enjoyed our short Gibraltar stay as I was able to see and locate the planned visit areas of The Living Daylights that were filmed on the Upper Rock Nature Reserve.

Using maps and some reference photos to align locations was slightly hindered by the changing landscape of tree and vegetation but, most film location structures have mostly remained as filmed and once found were easy to recognise. It was a joy to find them and part of that enjoyment is the admiration for the director and film crew who were able to produce a slick fast moving PTS in a fairly small area.
   
Any one else planning to go, would recommend maybe first using one of the Official Tour guides as the similar sounding area names and locations can cause confusion if asking for directions once you are there, also options and circumstances always change, and most tourist roadways on the Upper Rock are one way and narrow, meaning there is no going back.

Unfortunately, but understandably essential for all, was the safety barrier maintenance work being undertaken by workmen who were replacing whole lengths of handrailing in two of my planned locations, I was able to get reasonable photos but might just have to make another visit to get better ones.

Re: What Bond locations have you been to?

I will be spending the upcoming week attending D-Day celebrations.

Since I'm having some time off before Thursday, I thought that I'd visit the possible location of the Royale les Eaux.

Not strictly a film Bond location, but very much part of the lore in anycase.

Quoting Peppermill: The Bibliography (2012) states that the town is based on the coastal towns of Deauville, just south of Le Havre, and Le Touquet.

Re: What Bond locations have you been to?

While on a recent holiday to Malta and during a tour to the 100ton gun emplacement within Fort Rinella. we were able to overlook right into both The Malta Film Studios outdoor water SFX facilities. From the unique vantage point we were able to see activity going on preparing a scene for a new film (title unknown) and where the final scene for The Spy Who Loved Me was filmed.
The water tanks were empty, but when they are full and due to their near sea level location the water tanks and open sea horizon are seamless. 
Well worth a visit for any one interested in filming.

Re: What Bond locations have you been to?

Can you tell us more about what you saw from the Production of Bond25 there, please?

We went to Fort Rinella to view the 100ton gun, I was aware the Malta Film Studios were located next door so generally very pleased to have a look into their area next door.

There was no indication, notices or signage whatsoever on what the set up for filming was, plenty of preparation activity being undertaken, truck and FLT's movement and water tank was empty but certainly no mention of anything related to Bond.

Re: What Bond locations have you been to?

Sorry, it looks like I did some wishful reading of your post. Thank you for replying. I'd love to see the 100 ton gun. I watched a youtube video about it earlier this summer. It's really a piece of real-life steampunk and it could shoot halfway to Italy. Did you know Valetta, along with Kirkenes in Northern Norway, were the most frequently bombed towns in Europe in WWII?
