Wanderlust Wednesday- Angelina Jolie’s Louis Vuitton Ad

This week’s “Wanderlust Wednesday” is devoted to the amazing-ness that is Angelina Jolie.  I’m a little embarrassed to admit how much I love this woman; I think it’s so amazing what a great role model she is for young girls.  She shows the importance not only of family, but helping others around you who are far less fortunate.  She and Brad Pitt are notorious for giving money, and time, to help out others, whether in the US or in other countries.  Angelina, in this ad for Louis Vuitton’s “Journey Campaign”, describes how traveling changed her life!  She describes the effect that travel has had on her in terms of family, learning about herself, and how travel is exciting and soothing to her.  Be sure to check out the videos, and portraits taken by Annie Leibovitz not only of Angelina, but of Cambodians as well!

There are videos where she is interviewed about Cambodia and travel and there are two quotes that really stuck out to me:  

“I try to experience as much as I can, and kind-of adapt, so we can blend and have a full experience.  You try to not hold onto those things that are your comforts of home.  You try to let go of them and be of the new country.”  

“I’m always very excited when I’m on my way to some place I’ve never seen.  We joke at the house, anytime I get frustrated or upset about something, or feel like I’ve lost focus, I get my maps out.”

Just take your time looking through this link… You’ll be day-dreaming about Cambodia all week!

Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday, and I’m leaving on Friday for a road-trip to Texas- so be looking for some posts later this week!  Thanks for reading- feel free to leave any suggestions about things I need to see, watch, or read for future Wanderlust Wednesdays; I love hearing back from my fellow wanderlusters, and love to be inspired!

      She’s really an amazing lady! We all have at least time to give, but rarely do… I’m guilty of not doing nearly enough. I wish I were up in the north west right now; it’s 104 here! Thanks for keeping up with my blog! I’ll have a post and some pictures up by Sunday! Try to stay warm up there- I’ll send warm thoughts your way!

    I love this post – I am huge Angelina Jolie fan as well. The amount of time, effort, and money she spends to make the world a better place is inspiring. Critics have so many negative opinions of her, but NO ONE does this much humanitarian work solely for good PR. She may have issues in her private life- at least according to the tabloids abut her actions speak for themselves. Kudos to LV for choosing such a beautiful and humanitarian woman as it’s model.

      Exactly, she gets more crap than anyone, but she is one of the best role models out there; especially since she overcame drug addiction, and other dark times. I was pleased with their choice as well! Be sure to check out those videos on the LV website! Thanks for reading!
