7 Travel Inspired Movies to Watch if You Can't Actually Travel ...


I created a list of travel inspired movies to watch just to hold me over until my next international trip.

If you love to travel I think you will appreciate this list of scenic movies.

If you haven't traveled abroad yet, they will give you a taste of different cultures.

You may find yourself inspired to plan your own trip after watching these travel inspired movies.

1. Eat, Pray, Love

On iTunes at itunes.apple.com

Eat, Pray, Love has become one of my favorite travel inspired movies because the story takes place in multiple foreign locations.

If you didn't jump on the wagon and read the book when it first came out, the movie is quite good.

Julia Roberts plays the main character who is based on the original memoir's author.

After her divorce she finds herself going on a spiritual journey through Italy, India and Indonesia.

You'll get to go on the journey with her and possibly ask yourself important questions while experiencing these gorgeous countries on screen.

2. Before Sunrise

On iTunes at itunes.apple.com

Before Sunrise and the two movies that follow in this romantic trilogy by director Richard Linklater are in my personal film collection.

If you love Paris and you love a great love story then you should love Before Sunrise.

What's unique about the style of this movie is that it makes you feel like you're there with Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke.

It's like being a fly on the wall and you get to watch their intimacy develop.

The dialogue is superb, their chemistry is real and Paris is lovely as ever.

3. Vicky Cristina Barcelona

On iTunes at itunes.apple.com

This steamy movie is one of my favorite Woody Allen creations.2

The cast is pitch perfect and the city of Barcelona will captivate you.

I'm sure you have heard stories of women falling for a mysterious Spanish lover while back packing through Europe.

In this movie, Javier Bardem is that guy and Scarlett Johansson and Rebecca Hall are those girls.

I actually watched this movie again recently even though I'd seen it years ago because I miss Barcelona.

By the way, if you make it to Barcelona in real life you should definitely check out the Gaudi House.
