Hello Lovely Readers,
Today I have some really fun finds for you. Just in time for you to plan some travels this summer! Plus some that are just fun!
The first find is a CNN article you can read here, with a list of 9 cities to visit because they are connected to famous detectives. This was a really fun list for me because it was so international and I did not know many of the detectives. It just shows me I have a lot of fun books still to read. I of course would love to see Stockholm as I loved The Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson.
Second is an amazing resource for fans of the BBC show Sherlock. It is a list of most of the locations used in the 3 series and where they are as well as when in the series they appeared. Now before you click, there is information there from all 3 series, so if you have not caught up yet, don’t scroll all the way down (the article will tell you when to stop). You can view the list here. I know I now have some plans to visit some of these sites, especially the ones in London as I already have some trips planned there!
The next find is not a travel based one, but it reminds me of my childhood. It is 27 Reasons Why “The Great Mouse Detective” Is the Greatest Disney Movie. I loved this movie as a child and I love it even more now that I am more familiar with Sherlock Holmes. It is a great introduction to Holmes for youngsters, but there are many great references to some of the older portrayals of the character. I love that Basil, the mouse detective, is named after Basil Rathbone (who I love) who was one of the most famous actors to portray Holmes!
Lastly, is a fun find that pairs texts from last night with pictures from Sherlock for a very funny effect. As a warning there is some language that is not suitable for everyone, so just a heads up before you click here. I loved them and was laughing out loud at a lot of them as I could see the characters saying or doing the text!
Until next time,
