Tips / Destination

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.

Review: Sopa Barcelona

Located on a flat corner in Barcelona’s Poble Nou neighborhood, a site for many a tech startup or already established tech giant (like HP Enterprise and Booking.com), Sopa serves as a perfect lunch spot during the workday. The cafeteria-style eatery lets you fill up on vegetarian and vegan dishes and either dine in, take the food outside to the patio dining area or take it back to the office for a lunchtime meeting.
