Incredible Things About Traveling You Can Learn From These 15 Inspiring Movies

I enjoy traveling. It’s an amazing experience to explore this big world, understand different culture and meet people from around the world. How will you ever know what another country is really like if you’ve never been there? Besides, it’s such a big world out there that we’ll regret not seeing it with our own eyes before we die.

Here I’ve collected some of the incredible things about traveling from 15 movies which will get you pack your stuff and go traveling.

1. Life’s too short to stay in the same place, a big world is out there. Traveling widens your horizon and helps you feel the world.

“To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life.” – From The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty

    2. Sometimes to travel is the best reason to go traveling. Why do you need to give yourself different reasons just to take on a fun journey?

    “Miner’s Wife: Are you two looking for work?
    Ernesto Guevara de la Serna: No, we aren’t looking for work.
    Miner’s Wife: No?… Then why are you traveling?
    Ernesto Guevara de la Serna: We travel just to travel.”
    – From “Motorcycle Diaries”

      3. Traveling takes you not only to a different place, but a different stage of life.

      “You wake up at Seatac, SFO, LAX. You wake up at O’Hare, Dallas-Fort Worth, BWI. Pacific, mountain, central. Lose an hour, gain an hour. This is your life, and it’s ending one minute at a time. You wake up at Air Harbor International. If you wake up at a different time, in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?” – From Edward Norton in Fight Club

        4. Not everything can be expected is what makes traveling exciting. Things just won’t always go the way you want as you travel.

        “I love waking up in the morning not knowing what’s gonna happen or who I’m gonna meet, where I’m gonna wind up.” – From Jack in Titanic

          5. The best things’ not always mentioned in your map or guidebooks, you need to explore the world on your own.

          “We do not follow maps to buried treasure and X never, ever marks the spot.” – From Indiana Jones in “Last Crusade”

            6. Traveling enriches your experience, it changes you in a way you never expected.

            “Wandering around our America has changed me more than I thought. I am not me any more. At least I’m not the same me I was.” – From Ernesto Guevara de la Serna in “Motorcycle Diaries”

              7. You never know the differences between one place and another until you really have been there and experience them.

              Vincent: Yeah, baby, you’d dig it the most. But you know what the funniest thing about Europe is?
              Jules: What?
              Vincent: It’s the little differences. I mean, they got the same shit over there that we got here, but it’s just…it’s just there it’s a little different.
              – From Pulp Fiction

                8. Traveling with fear is alright, it won’t hurt you.

                “I told myself spreading news was part of a traveler’s nature, but if I was being completely honest, I was just like everybody else: shit-scared of the great unknown. Desperate to take a little piece of home with me.” – From Richard in The Beach

                  9. Don’t stay in your comfort zone, try exotic places where you can gain new perspectives of life.

                  “English, who needs that? I’m never going to England” – From Homer Simpson

                    10. It’s okay to feel lost when you travel. You don’t always have to know where you are to go on with your journey.

                    “We haven’t located us yet.” – From The Darjeeling Limited

                    The Darjeeling Limited

                      11. As you go on traveling and visiting more places, you start to realize how sweet your home really is.

                      “There’s no place like home” – From The Wizard of Oz

                      wizard of oz

                        12. The people you travel with are as important as the places you travel to. They are people who can make your journey memorable.

                        “Let’s never come here again because it would never be as much fun.” – From Charlotte in Lost in Translation

                          13. Traveling’s not about having a luxurious trip all the time, it’s about the experience of a different country and different culture.

                          “I’m not really wealthy as such but it I want to stay in the Hilton I could do it, but to me, to stay in the hostels and such, that’s really travel.” – From A Map For Saturday

                          A-map-for-saturday

                            14. Indeed there are unfortunate people who really can’t afford to travel, but most people only blind themselves with excuses to stay in their comfort zone and are not willing to take on an adventure.

                            “Most people don’t have the luxury of just leaving it all behind.” – From The Way

                            the way

                              15. Adventure is out there, as simple as that! Travel around and you can create remarkable memories in life.

                              “Adventure is out there!” – From Up

                              up

                                10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

                                10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

                                Your house is more than just a building that you live in. It should be a home that makes you feel welcome as soon as you open the front door.

                                Making your house feel like a home is not something that simply happens on its own. You need to make some changes to a house when you move in, to give it that cozy, warm feeling that turns it into a true home. To help you speed the process, follow this guide to 10 small changes to make your house feel like a home.

                                1. Make the Windows Your Own

                                When you move into a home, they often come with boring Venetian blinds or less than attractive curtains.

                                One of the best ways you can instantly warm your home and make it showcase your style is to add some new window dressing. Adding beautiful curtains not only improves your home’s appearance, but it can also help to control the temperature.

                                2. Put up Some Art

                                If you have a lot of bare walls in your home, it will seem sterile no matter how beautiful your paint or wallpaper is.

                                Hanging art on the walls will instantly give it personality and make it feel like home.

                                3. Improve the Aroma

                                A house that is not filled with inviting smells will never feel like a home. There are loads of ways you can make your home smell nice. There are tons of air fresheners on the market you can use.

                                Incense and scented candles are a nice option as well. Don’t forget that baking in a home is also a great way to fill it with an aroma that instantly smells like home as soon as you open the front door.

                                4. Put out Lots of Pillows and Throws

                                A great way to make your home look warm and inviting is to place lots of pillows and throws out on the furniture. It is much better to have too many pillows than not enough.

                                There is nothing like the feeling of sinking into a cushiony pillow that feels like a cloud to make you feel like you are at home.

                                5. Instantly Class up Your Closet

                                If your closet is filled with wire or plastic hangers, it will never truly feel homey. To instantly make your closet feel classy, change out your old hangers for wooden ones.

                                Not only do they look great, but they are better for hanging your clothes as well.

                                6. Improve Your Air Quality

                                One of the most overlooked ways to make your house feel more like a home is to improve its air quality.

                                The easiest and best way to upgrade the air quality in your home is to change the old, dirty filters in your furnace regularly. Get some air filters delivered to your home so that you always have some on hand.

                                7. Fill it with Plants

                                Another way to improve the air quality in your home is to fill it with plants. You should have plants in every room of your home.

                                They help to improve the air quality and they look beautiful. As well as making your home appear homier, plants also help to boost your mood and lower your stress levels.

                                8. Change the Doorknobs

                                Most people don’t really give their doorknobs a second thought unless they are broken. That is a shame because changing your doorknobs is an easy way to add personality to your home.

                                Changing your old, boring doorknobs to new ones that are works of art will instantly brighten your home.

                                9. Upgrade Your Tub or Shower

                                There is nothing like luxuriating in a whirlpool bath or steam shower to make the cares of the day melt away. Your family deserves a bit of luxury when they are in their bathroom.

                                Install a new shower or tub today to make your bathroom worthy of a place in your home.

                                10. Fresh Cut Flowers

                                You can make any room in your house feel homier by placing a vase full of beautiful flowers in it. The gorgeous look and intoxicating aroma of fresh cut flowers will immediately brighten your day when you encounter them.

                                You don’t have to make all these changes at once. Try one or two a day though, and your house will feel like a home before you know it. The trick is to constantly keep adding these homey touches to make your home a place worthy of its name.
