Films that make me wanna travel

Thanks to the gloomy winter weather here in England, I've been shut in the house most days which means you end up watching a lot more TV than usual... and with a couple of trips booked ready for Spring I've been dying to travel! It's made me realize that there are so many films that inspire wanderlust for their audience, so here's a short list of my faves:

Roman Holiday (1953)

An oldie but a goodie, continuing with my princess theme Audrey Hepburn places an escaped Princess running away from her royal duties to smooch around Rome with an American Journalist - did I mention I've been to Rome recently? Well just in case you haven't been bombarded with my 100 posts on Instagram about it here's a link to the blog post I wrote about the trip so you can be an escaped Prince/ss too!

Enchanted (2007)

This has got to be one of my childhood favourites, but I never realised just how much the scene in Central Park makes me want to run around like Giselle and book a plane ticket to replicate her! And I guess this is technically a film about travel - after all, she falls down a well from her magical fairy tale land to get there...

The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

If you haven't already seen this film, be prepared for every scene (purposefully) looking like a framed piece of art. Of course the story revolves around a hotel and it's vast snowy landscape that surrounds it, but the witty humour and beautiful shots make winter seem far more bearable!

Lilo & Stitch (2002)

Of course I had to include more than one Disney film... I've always wanted to venture out to Hawaii but every time I see this film it makes my urge to book a flight and learn to surf x10 stronger (and it's pretty funny too but I'm going to assume you probably know that already)

Marie Antoinette (2006)

From one climate to another, Marie Antoinette is full of pastries, parties and the beautiful French countryside. Versailles is a place I've always wanted to visit and the way this film shows it so intimately with it's banquets and secret doors makes this film, like The Grand Budapest Hotel, a beautifully visual film.

I hope you liked my choices! What films make you want to travel? Comment below or let me know on Instagram
