Following the Dragon Tattoo trail

Just recently, a colleague of mine came back from a one-week holiday in Korea. I asked her if she visited "those famous 'romantic spots' featured in their drama series." (Mind you, I'm not a fan. I came to know about them through my sister who's one)

There are many other places that are made famous because of drama series and books, and have now become tourist trails such as New Zealand (The Lord of The Rings), Phi Phi Island (The Beach), and recently, Sweden (Larsson's Millenium trilogy). Have you visited any one of them? I hope to visit New Zealand one day :)

"The Swedish capital Stockholm now has its own version, based on Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy, as Carmen Roberts has been finding out. To watch the video, go here."

I have yet to read the novels, as I'm currently reading something on child development :) (Lots of non-fiction for me lately!)

Wow, very interesting. I heard that sometimes a book makes a big business in a different field of industry. I'm wondering if there is such a big one in Japan which brings about a tour. I enjoyed this post. Thanks!

R u pregnant??? Child development.. hmm..

I'm currently reading THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO... the plot is fantastic!!! Quite different from the average American mystery novel I would say, and it really immerses you in the whole Swedish landscape. Though it gets a bit boring at some parts (due to dual character development) and a bit too thick, but it's really worth a read just becos of the intriguing plot!

Btw, I miss your posts! Please post more!
