Hartfield is a small village in the Ashdown Forest, where the stories of Winnie-the-Pooh were born. Josh and I went to Hartfield a few times last autumn, including this one in early September with his grandparents. If you’re looking to go somewhere in East Sussex, Hartfield is worth considering, with treats at Pooh Corner and a walk to Pooh Sticks Bridge. Continue reading and you’ll see why I liked Hartfield so much! Hartfield Pooh Corner Tea Room Pooh Corner is a Winnie-the-Pooh-themed tea room. It has both indoor and outdoor seating available. Even though it was a weekday, we made a reservation to avoid any waiting just in case. We also requested an outdoor table during booking to be on the safer side from the COVID-19 risk for Josh’s grandparents. Tasty Lunch and Tea at Pooh Corner A lot of dishes on the menu looked tempting and we went for…

This post talks about my day trip to Jumunjin, Gangwon-do Province in South Korea to reenact a scene from my all-time favourite K-drama Goblin (or Guardian). If you’re a big fan of Goblin, you cannot miss this spot in Korea! Check out how I prepared to look like Ji Eun-tak and what kind of transport options are available. Reading my travelogue, you may find yourself ready to set off to Gangwon for a photoshoot like me. I guarantee it is great fun! The mega-hit K-Drama Goblin <Guardian: The Lonely and Great God> Source: tvN Goblin Official Site K-drama Goblin (‘Guardian: The Lonely and Great God’ for the official English title; ‘도깨비 – 쓸쓸하고 찬란하神’ for the Korean equivalent) is definitely one of the most-watched dramas of recent years in Korea.

Halloween is only about a fortnight away. Both my travel companion and I normally didn’t really make a fuss about Halloween (and we still don’t). But we did have one wishful image about what to do at Halloween if we ever did something about it. It was to visit Transylvania… in costume! The idea of Halloween in Transylvania was originally my buddy’s cup of tea who is full of vivid imaginations. But his briefing on the idea easily convinced me, and yes we made that happen last year. The following post is how we executed the idea and where we visited. The time in Romania was part of our adventure to the central/eastern Europe, and it was indeed a highlight of the holiday. If you’ve wondered a unique time for Halloween or wanted to get some exciting inspiration for travel destinations, save this post on your radar! 😉 Before setting off…

The lovely memories in Cornwall remain still, even though it has been many years ago since the summer holiday. As a big fan of the movie About Time, I wished to see the beautiful scenes in the movie in real life. As summer is approaching, recalling my best summer holiday I would like to show you some of the best destinations in Cornwall. St. Austell (Charlestown Harbour) The water is crystal clear at Charlestown Harbour, so clear that you cannot resist the temptation to dip your feet into the water. 🙂 Charlestown Harbour is not very far from Tim’s family’s house in the movie About Time. You can actually stay at Porthpean House, as it is beloved for holidays and house parties. Portloe Tim and Mary’s wedding is one of the most memorable scenes in the movie because of the sudden downpour. That impressive scene was filmed here in Portloe, a small…

If you claim to be a fan of the Harry Potter series, the United Kingdom should be your destination of the year for 2017. This is because you will encounter a lot of Harry Potter-related events in the UK, celebrating the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone! I searched some events which I want to attend, and here they are – calling every Harry Potter fan! 🙂 Warner Bros. Studio (Image from pixabay.com) Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter should be a Must-Go place for many Harry Potter movie fans. Compared to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter from Universal Studios, this attraction has more focus on the process of film production. With that, its special exhibitions for this year also introduce additional stories behind the movie characters and items. 1. Directing Dobby ( ~ 31. March) This exhibition allows us to find out how Dobby was created -…

Since Paddington the bear came into the world in October 1958 through the book named ‘A Bear Called Paddington’, it has stayed close to us in various forms: souvenirs, TV commercials and programmes, and movies. Now, during the last two months of this year we can even meet the bear greeting us at physical locations around London. From 4th November to 30th December, visitors to London can see more than 50 Paddington statues along the Paddington Trail. Every statue has different designs signed by worldwide celebrities, designers and artists including Benedict Cumberbatch, Emma Watson, David Beckham, Boris Johnson, Stephen Fry. This event is a result of partnerships among Studio Canal, which is a movie distribution company for Paddington, VisitBritain and the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC). It is in the part of Great Britain Campaign* which the UK Government has executed to promote various sectors in the UK. The Paddington Trail is specifically to improve Tourism…
