Salut people!

Yet another Wednesday has arrived and has brought with it hopes and anticipation of the weekend.

And it has also gotten another edition of the Wanderlust Wednesdays!

This Wednesday, we decided to embrace our lazy selves. We got thinking as to how can we travel and not travel at the same time? You know what we're sayin'? Not moving at all yet being able to see all the beauties and treasures of the world.......

Through movies!

Just think, sitting in your comfy couch all day, watching movies that take you from destination to destination, and snacks!

So sit back, put your feet up, get all your favorite snacks and a bottle of wine and get ready to roam around beautiful places and get inspired to travel, while you're at it!

Roman Holiday

This Audrey Hepburn & Gregory Peck rom-com might seem unrelated to travel, but this movie is perfect to set the mood for a travel movie marathon. In the movie, Audrey Hepburn is a princess who is frustrated with her royal, monotonous life and decides to take matters into her own hands. She escapes from her guards while on an official visit to Rome, where she meets Gregory Peck who takes her around the sights of Rome. You know, when in Rome.. Get cuddly with your significant other or your cushions and enjoy the graceful Audrey Hepburn and dashing Gregory Peck take you on a Roman adventure!

The Endless Summer

This documentary follows two surfers around the world as they try to find that perfect wave and in search of that wave, find so many other good things that they did not expect, yet were memorable. The 'surf and travel' culture became popular after this movie came. A lovely movie depicting the beautiful ocean and its stories; perfect for summer watching!

Eat, Pray, Love

Based on a memoir, this Julia Roberts movie resonates with your heart, more if you're a woman. The story of a broken-hearted woman as she embarks on a journey to find happiness. Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of the memoir upon which inspired the movie takes us through a fantastic journey, starting with Italy (eat), moving through India (pray) and finding love in Bali.

The Darjeeling Limited

Roam through the Indian Subcontinent with this multi-starrer drama film, where three brothers set out on a luxury train “The Darjeeling Limited” which travels across India. While you watch the 3 brothers fight it out or try to find their spirituality or flirt with stewardesses, you can also see the achingly beautiful sights that India has to offer.

One week


Amidst this heartbreaking story of a young teacher who is diagnosed with cancer and has little time left is a poignant tale of self discovery and of following your heart. Ben, the teacher, decides to go out on an adventure before starting treatment and travels through Canada, starting with Toronto, to Saskatchewan then to Alberta and further. This movie is a story of a young man, tied down by the tough decisions that have to be made in life, and how he travels to enjoy what time he has left and discovers many a new thing about himself.

Bonus Movie – Up!


Just like any other Disney movie, Up is also a movie that will move you to tears and leave you with a giant smile, both at the same time. The story of an old man who wants to fulfill the promise made to his wife, whom he loved very much. The promise of going and settling near Paradise Falls, with their house to be on a cliff just overlooking the falls. Up is beautifully narrated, telling the viewer to follow their dreams and listen to their heart. A captivating story-line mixed with the hopes and emotions of the characters, this movie will resonate your heart strings!

Wanderlusting already? We thought so..! Why wait for the weekend to switch on the Television, get your favorite DVDs and start your movie meandering right away. Get friends and family together to add more to the fun. :)

So many joys to you.
