8 Books & Movies that Inspire Wanderlust

Vicky Christina Barcelona

Perhaps it’s a reflection of my age but I am drawn to films and movies that combine a desire to travel with the utter confusion and overwhelming prospect of being a twenty-something. The film, Vicky Christina Barcelona, follows the story of two American girls who decide to spend their summer in Barcelona. While one girl is a dreamer chasing some unknown mirage of the perfect love, the other is a realist who has over-planned each minute of her existence; Barcelona exposes the girls to new concepts, ideas and self-revelations that take them far from where they started. Woody Allen’s film is true to form in the sense there is no over-the-top, fairy tale ending but rather a mirror for how travel affects each of us and what we choose to do with those lessons learned.
