  1. Great post! 🙂 I had watched ‘Midnight in Paris’ before going to Paris and the movie did make me look forward to the trip more! Also, I watched Vicky, Christina, Barcelona after coming back from Barcelona but I loved the movie as it brought the memories of my trip back. I will definitely watch ‘In Bruges’ soon as I am going to Bruges next month 🙂

  2. Hi Lolo,
    Movies always make travelling fun, especially when it comes to travelling in flights. These movies that you have listed are some of my favorites. The movies not only give us an insight into the countries but show the things we might not come across as tourists.
