Our Trips  Were Inspired by 12 Travel Books and Movies

We love hearing about other people’s adventures, and we often use them as inspiration for our own travels. When we think about the best travel books, we dream of the travel adventures that await us.

The following list of travel movies and travel books forever changed the way I travel.

The Winemaker’s Wife (Book)

Reading this novel helped me get through a couple of days of jetlag at the beginning of our vacation and by the time we arrived in Champagne, I was just enthralled with the city of Epernay.

All The Light We Cannot See (Book and soon to be a movie)

The vivid storyline and the detail the author used to describe the city of St Malo stayed with me for many years, and it was an easy decision to add it to our travel itinerary in 2019.

Dunkirk (Book and Movie)

5 out of 5

After seeing the movie, my husband and I knew we wanted to visit Dunkirk, France. It ended up being the first stop on our travel itinerary in 2019 along the Normandy Coast.

Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil (Book and Movie)

We made a day trip to Savannah in 2010 while on vacation in nearby Hilton Head Island.

Excess Baggage (Movie)

I watched the travel movie Excess Baggage way back in 1997, and I had wanted to go to the Jasper Park Lodge ever since.
