Do you like road trips like The Motorcycle Diaries or do you travel for business like Up in the Air? Check out these six movies to inspire your next adventure.



Midnight In Paris (2011)

This time-traveling romantic comedy explores the conflicting themes of nostalgia and modernism, transporting the audience to 1920s Paris where Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein and the Fitzgeralds drink into the night.



Lost in Translation (2003)

Sofia Coppola’s existential classic stars Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson as lonely, disillusioned hearts in the middle of a strange and unfamiliar city.



The Motorcycle Diaries (2004)

Long before Che Guevara’s face was plastered on American t-shirts, he was a Marxist icon fighting in the Cuban revolution. Before that, he was just a kid taking a road trip through South America on a 1938 Norton 500cc called La Poderosa (The Mighty One).



Eat Pray Love (2010)

Starring Julia Roberts, Eat Pray Love is based on a memoir of a woman who travels the world after a divorce, learning about the joy of eating in Italy, prayer in India and love in Indonesia.



Up in the Air (2009)

The staple for business travelers and road warriors, George Clooney stars as a jet-setting HR consultant in the middle of the financial meltdown, sent across the country to fire employees as his own job is in danger of getting outsourced.



Wild (2014)

Based on a true memoir, Wild is about Cheryl Strayed’s 1,100-mile hike along the Pacific Crest Trail, taking on physical and spiritual obstacles in her life.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

Top Beaches in Portugal

Portugal boasts plenty of coastline and there is a stretch of sand to suit everyone.

Stay in an Ice Hotel

Ice hotels are becoming increasingly popular as a unique adventure for dedicated travelers. If you've ever wondered what kind of gusto it takes to join the polar bear club by jumping into frigid waters in your speedo, imagine the thrill of spending the night on a bed of ice inside your own igloo wrapped in warm blankets and furs.

Work and Play in Italy

Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.

Oymyakon, Siberia – The Coldest Town on Earth

Oymyakon, Siberia, is literally the coldest inhabited town on Earth. The town of only 500 residents is nicknamed “The Pole of Cold” and has witnessed temperatures as low as -98 degrees. Here, where eyelashes freeze in mere moments, cars must be kept running continually to avoid a dead battery, and vegetables cannot grow naturally; locals have managed to eke out a quaint, and oddly endearing, existence.
