Bedford Travel Guide
Saturday's surprise nor'easter screwed up many people's travel plans, including Martha Stewart who had to skip a Halloween party in NYC on Saturday night because the roads in her Connecticut neighborhood were impassible.
Martha might be able whip up a four-course meal, set the perfect table,all well making a fresh flower arrangement to go with it, but not even she can control Mother Nature. Martha was tracking the big storm on Twitter where she announced she was stranded in Connecticut.
Slip the name James Bond into anything touristy and we will be there like a shot. It's embarrassing but true, and the latest Bond-related place of interest is the Bodyflight indoor skydiving facility in Bedford, England.
Two things: First up, some of the scenes from the "Quantum of Solace" Bond movie were filmed here so you, too, can fly in the same wind tunnel that Daniel Craig did.
And second: you can go one step further than Craig, because they're about to open a new ride called Bodyflight Vertigo. It's a 120-foot jump, the tallest in Britain, and you're free-falling for two thirds of the way. This pleasure (or terror) will only cost you £30 (US$57) or you can combine it with a trip through the wind tunnel for some simulated skydiving. The fun kicks off in September, two months before the new Bond movie hits theaters.
