Going to the cinema, or watching films and DVDs at home is definitely one of the most popular pastimes of the last 50 years. Watching movies is an easy way to learn new things, to switch off, to be entertained, and if we are lucky, to be inspired. However, who works in the cinema industry and what do they do?

An important part of organising a holiday is to find somewhere to stay. Luxury might be your cup of tea, so a 5 star hotel would be suitable, or you might want to ‘rough it’ and sleep in a tent. My tastes change depending on the type of trip I am taking. For example, in 2000 I took a 2 week road trip around France and slept outdoors in a tent under the stars. When I was in Costa Rica on a safari, I slept in a hammock, and when I was sailing from Australia to Sri Lanka I slept in a tiny cabin.
However, if I had more time and money, I would definitely stay in an underwater hotel, sleep in a space station, or try an ice hotel. How about you? Where is the most unusual place you have ever stayed?
