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.

127 Hours

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.

Before Sunset

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.

Brokedown Palace

Protect your luggage while traveling. Never let it out of your sight.

Crocodile Dundee

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.

Mamma Mia!

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?

Open Water

Stick with your tour group -- don’t stray.

Out of Africa

Life is short. Taking an international lover isn’t a bad idea!
