I could literally spend a whole day there shopping, eating, seeing a movie and checking out the arts. Ice Skating rink in the winter months. You should have seen how big my daughter’s...

BAFF On Now In Barcelona:Barcelona Asian Film Fest

Call me cool, but I just can’t get enough when it comes to film Festivals. I like the surprise element of film fests because the movies are usually not well promoted and I usually have no idea who the director is. The lights go down and the plot unfolds without any pretenses; it’s great. Or it’s awful…that’s the thing about film fests, you just never know what you’re going to get. The BAFF festival celebrates Asian film in Barcelona and will be going on from the...

“Australia” Locations in Sydney | See Where Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman Shot Baz Lurhmann’s Epic Film

Much of Baz Lurhmann’s epic Australia was filmed in the outback, but Sydney tourists can still see a couple of spots made famous in the film. The first is Strickland House, which you might remember as the scene of the charity ball. The house was built in the 1850s for John Hosking, the first Lord Mayor of Sydney. Back then it was called Carrara, but its name was changed in 1915 to Strickland House. With the name change came a new function; at the turn of the century it became a convalescent home...
