Sometimes a film's breathtaking or intriguing location implants a desire to vacation there.
Here are some vacations of my dreams and the films that fueled them.
- The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (2005), a somewhat forgettable movie, except for the scenes of Greece. When Lena (Alexis Biedel) rides a donkey up a path surrounded by blue domed white-washed buildings with glimpses of the deep blue sea while iconic Greek music plays, well… it calls out to me.

- The same with Mamma Mia! (2008). The main thing I remember is the beautiful scenery, and my desire to go there.
