A few days ago I spent a lazy Sunday watching Under the Tuscan Sun on television. I saw this movie ages ago in theaters when it first came out. It was one of the first films that ever really inspired me to travel. If you haven’t seen it, a broken-hearted Diane Lane goes to Tuscany on a ten day trip and ends up purchasing a dilapidated villa, never returning home. She befriends an eccentric Italian woman, she has a torrid affair on the beaches of Positano. I still sometimes dream of giving it all up and moving to Italy.
The movie reminded me why I love traveling so much (AND that I still haven’t made it to Italy…boo.) I found myself rereading old travel quotes and spending the day dreaming of foreign lands. I know I have been spending an excess of money on beauty products and random crap. It’s time I really start getting back on track prioritizing travel.
