You could say I'm catching flights... getting antsy and wishing my next travel plans were coming faster! When I'm dreaming of jet setting, there's only one way for me to ease my sorrows: settle in for a film to send my mind elsewhere. Here are my top 5 movies that always fill my travel withdrawals:
As a study abroad student, living the Florentine life can be an incredibly rewarding experience filled with great food, amazing people, and new adventures. However, to truly get the local experience it can be helpful to focus on the culture itself.

Attraversiamo: an all-encompassing word meaning “let’s cross over”. For my Eat, Pray, Love admirers, this is already a familiar concept.

Shortly following what most would recognize as a mid-life crisis, Liz abandons her daily life and retreats for a year-long journey of self-discovery between Italy, India, and Bali. This adventure is nothing short of an emotional rollercoaster that has left me with an overflowing supply of inspiration.
Life is complicated, that's a given. I'm here to talk through the rough patches, and celebrate the successes of adulthood as a millennial travel professional.
