7 Movies That Make You Feel Like You're Somewhere Else
Some movies have the ability to transport you to completely different places.

Amélie

Looking to brush up on your French? Or do you just have an overwhelming urge to leave your house and travel? Either way, not to worry… there are English subtitles. Amelie is a surprisingly un-corny story about a twenty-something waitress finding love in 1990s Paris. Pay attention to the fashion and the moody French soundtrack.

Casablanca

"Here's looking at you kid...." Yes, it's black and white. Yes, the characters have weird accents (even though they are supposed to be American). But this dramatic, wartime story truly transports you to 1940s Morocco.

Roman Holiday

Also black and white. I know. But trust me on this- Roman Holiday is one of the most iconic travel movies ever created. There are scenes shot at almost every famous monument and tourist attraction in Rome. Pay attention to Audrey Hepburn's outfits!

To Catch A Thief

This movie is an inspiring but forbidden romance that takes place in the beautiful French Riviera. Again, pay attention to the fashion!

Moana

Okay, I know it's a kid's movie… but it still makes you feel like you're in Hawaii. The quality of the animation is unreal.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

A very light-hearted movie that features some of the coolest destinations on earth: New York, Greenland, Iceland, Yemen, and Afghanistan. Watch it.

Rocky (all of them!)

Missing Villanova and Philadelphia? I'm sure we've all taken the SEPTA into 30th street to run up and down the famous steps. Rocky will take you back to an iconic, 1970s Philly that's totally different from the one that we know.

Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

Every single one of us has a story.

I don't say that to be cliché. I don't say that to give you a false sense of encouragement. I say that to be honest. I say that to be real.
