In celebration of our upcoming trip to London, England to visit friends and family, I got a little carried away looking for London inspired travel decor. There was a time in my life where I could have easily decorated my whole house in black and white with red accents in a London theme. England was the first country I had traveled outside of the US to when I was 14 and I became QUITE obsessed with London!
As we all know, I am a huge movie buff and love anything that has to do with traveling around Europe at any point in history. I love all types of films as long as they aren’t horror films! Romantic, Comedies, Historic, you name it, I will watch it! Before I go on vacation somewhere, I usually try to find a movie or read a book that takes place where I am going!
Here is my list of movies you should definitely check out before coming on a trip to Europe which includes both chick-flicks and action-flicks for those nights you and your special someone are looking for something to watch!

They say that When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life. If such a thing could ever be possible, then Brighton is the perfect location to get away and recharge! Just an hour or two (depending on traffic) south of London, is England’s most popular seaside town which became popular after the railroad finally reached this seaside resort in 1841! Ever since, the population has grown, as well as the tourists who seek to see more of England other than just London.
