    What Bond locations have you visited?

    Hey all,

    So what Bond locations have you you visited? Here's my list, though I'm sure I'll forget a few...

    - Various locations around London, including Lazenby's photo perch and the 'underground' door from DAD (London, UK)
    - Stoke Park Golf Course from Goldfinger (UK)
    - Jumped off the Goldeneye Dam (Versazca, Switzerland)
    - Piz Gloria
    - Lunch at the Eiffel Tower (Jules Verne Restaurant, Paris, France)
    - 'Zorin's stable' Chateau Chantilly (just outside Paris)
    - Dinner and drinks at the Ocean Club (Bahamas)
    - Drinks at the Cafe Martinique (though refurbished since 1965, Bahamas)
    - Palmyra (well, just outside, Bahamas)

    Whoa, where haven't we been? I've been priviliged to take fans to hundreds of interior and exterior locations from my Bond Weekends.

    50-plus locations from LTK including the Coast Guard Base (only fans ever) and inside and around Felix Leiter's home and pool (again unique); every DIAMONDS location including inside WW Techtronics (sole fans to do so) and Slumber, Inc. (yep), 3 days of NYC tours including Uptown and Harlem, Midtown and The Battery. Max Vesterhalt of For Your Eyes Only met us in Harlem to talk about traveling around the world with Sir Roger Moore.

    I've eaten inside Palmyra, seen the construction chase scene and Madagascar jungle before CASINO ROYALE came out, have been to The Riviera and The Hilton with Lana Wood, have been aboard H.M.S. Queen Mary (sister ship to the Queen Elizabeth in Ian Fleming's Diamonds Are Forever) with George Lazenby and Maud Adams, on Bourbon Street with Gloria Hendry, etc., etc.

    I'm a locations junkie and recently have been to the exact spot where Bond's taxi enters Miami in CR, am going to New Orleans next week to see some sights again, and took recent trips to see two train stations from Ian Fleming's Live and Let Die.
    -- Have collected OO7 for over 30 years, and led the ten Bond Collectors’ Weekends in Las Vegas, New Orleans, California, Chicago, New York, Florida and The Bahamas, with over 120 special guests, actors, artists, musicians, screenwriters and production team members, along with real world intelligence officers from CIA, NSA, FBI and the KGB in attendance.

    Circus Circus casino from 'Diamonds Are Forever'. I was there when you could look up and see the shows from the casino floor.
    They covered it after the Bond movie, because players stopped gambling to see the shows.
