I love to travel, and if I can’t travel the next best thing is to watch a movie that makes you feel like you are right there. Here are some of my favourites
Under the Tuscan Sun
with Diane Keaton
Such a great feel good movie and absolutely love the scenery of the Tuscan countryside, and the challenges of renovating in another language.
A Good Year
with Russell Crowe
I love this movie, set in Provence, the scenery is stunning. It’s a lesson in slowing down and enjoying life.
Eat, Pray, Love
with Julia Roberts
Something we may all need to do at some point in our life.
Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (1 & 2)
Although this may seem like an odd choice, it’s not just the pants that are doing the traveling. These friends are traveling all over the place, including Greece, Turkey and Mexico.
The Bucket List
with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman
What came first the movie or the saying?. Regardless many people have their own Bucket Lists, and travel is always one of the main items.
Thelma and Louise
with Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis
This movie just makes you want to get in the car and drive, just not off a cliff (spoiler alert).
Out of Africa
with Meryl Streep and Robert Redford
One of the first movies I remember really featuring somewhere else. Now if I could just stay awake through the whole movie, I might have more to say about it.
with Meryl Streep
Although I am not a huge fan of musicals, the visuals of Greece in this movie are great, and make me want to go. Sorry if the song is now in your head.
