1. Midnight in Paris

This Woody Allen film will not only make you want to visit Paris today, but Paris of the 1920s. From the introduction to so many quirky artists, who though long gone, are still influential in the Paris art scene, to the fascination for walking through Paris in the rain, there is nothing about this movie that will not help you get ready for your Paris adventure. 

2. El Estudiante (The Student)

This Mexican film is set in the breathtaking town of Guanajuato, Guanajuato. The main character is a 70 year old man who decides to fulfil his dreams and enrolls in the historic University of Guanajuato. He befriends a group of young students while attending the school, and though he imparts wisdom on them, they also teach him a thing or two. The scenery in the movie will seriously make you want to buy a ticket for Guanajuato right now. The views of the colorful, bustling, valley town are like none other. 

3. Under the Tuscan Sun

As if you needed a reason to visit Italy, this film has some astonishing views of the Tuscan countryside. Like Frances, this may just be the answer to the vacation escape you really require. 

4. Darjeeling Limited

Nevermind that it is directed by the quirky and wonderful Wes Anderson, this film features some of Anderson’s favorite actors to work with, including Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, and Jason Schwartzman. On their journey to visit their mother the three brothers take a train, the Darjeeling Limited, throughout India. We experience both the big cities and the Indian countryside.

5. The Motorcycle Diaries

This movie, based on the life and travels of Ernesto “Che” Guevara is set throughout South America. From Argentina’s capital city of Buenos Aires to the the ruins of Machu Picchu in Peru, after watching this film you’ll be ready to rent a motorcycle and take the same journey. Of course it wouldn’t hurt if you ran into Gael Garcia Bernal on the way.

6. Lost In Translation

Sophia Coppola’s mysterious movie, “Lost In Translation” will leave you guessing and leave you with the need to travel to Tokyo. From the hotel where Bill Murray’s character stays, with its ridiculously amazing bathtub, to the karaoke bar, you better start practicing your Japanese. 

7. Once

If you’ve never wanted to go to Dublin, Ireland, get prepared. After watching this movie, not only will you have a crush on Glen Hansard and his beautiful voice, but you will need to walk down those same city streets, while listening to the sound track. 

8. Vicky, Cristina, Barcelona

Yet another Woody Allen film, but this time set in Barcelona. You’ll follow the adventures of two young girls, and their interactions with the people of Barcelona, not forgetting of course, that one of them is Javier Bardem, playing a brooding artist. 

9. Everything Is Illuminated

Based on the exceptional novel by Jonathan Safran Foer, “Everything Is Illuminated” will take you through Ukrainian villages, in search for an old friend. The cinematography is exceptional in this film, and pretty soon you’ll be buying your tickets, be sure to take the book with you. 

10. Into the Wild 

Directed by Sean Penn, this film is for the wilderness adventure seeker in all of us. You may not consider yourself as such, but after watching this film, seeing the expanses of Alaska, you might just change your mind. 

Admittedly, this was a difficult list to narrow down. It is also possible that the list was swayed by personal directorial preferences, but start exploring for your own personal enjoyment and see where it is you want to go! Once you decided, remember Gaab Travel International is here for you.
