Lessons Learned From Travel Movies
Movies can spark our imaginations and inspire us to hit the road. Here’s a list of travel movies and the valuable lessons they have to offer the traveler in all of us.
Prepare for the unexpected. Always travel with someone. Pack for emergencies. If you’re traveling alone, always tell someone when you’re going off without a phone. Tell people your complete itinerary.
Get off-the-beaten path. Get lost. Wander down narrow streets, whether in Paris or New York City. You might surprise yourself by what you find.
Protect your luggage while traveling. Never let it out of your sight.
Please. If you’re going to visit the Outback, take along a guide. You are not Crocodile Dundee!
Eat, Pray, Love
Hot guys do yoga! When in Rome, eat. When all else fails, travel. Take time out for yourself to think, meditate and reflect.
If It's Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium
Take your time and don’t rush through your vacation.
Lost in Translation
Spend time with locals. Explore without a map. Learn the language. Immerse yourself in another culture -- it’s the best way to get to know a place.
You’re never too old or too young to fall in love on your travels. And what better place to make that happen than beautiful Greece?
Stick with your tour group -- don’t stray.
Out of Africa
Life is short. Taking an international lover isn’t a bad idea!
Travel is inspirational. Get out there and see the world.
Protect paradise. Search for your own secret island, and respect the locals.
The Out of Towners
Always prepare for the worst-case travel scenario, and avoid looking like a tourist.
Under the Tuscan Sun
Build it and it will come (together). The best way to know a country is to live there.
