See the movie, then see the country
How many of us were inspired to go somewhere after seeing a movie? For example, I was lucky to catch a screening of the comedy L’Auburge Espagnole before visiting Barcelona on a trip through Europe. Part of the fun was retracing the steps of my favorite characters.
Museyon Guides is ready to help out movie buffs with its new series of “Film + Travel” books. They’re full of fascinating background trivia, often straight from the people who worked on the films. For an excellent write-up, check out this In Transit blog post.
Got any stories to share about visiting places you saw in movies? How did the reality compare to the fantasy?
