Wanderlust Wednesday- Movies That Inspire Travel: Part Nine

This week’s Wanderlust Wednesday is all about the Indiana Jones movies!  (Well, 3 of the 4- the real Indiana Jones movies!)

When I was a little girl my family had Indiana Jones night all the time.  My brother and I were obsessed with these movies and all the adventures that Indiana had! These movies give you, not only beautiful views of a lot of different places, but these movies were also my first window into other cultures.


Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

Raiders of the Lost Ark is all about Indiana Jones trying to find the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis do.

This movie takes you on a journey through France, England, Tunisia, Hawaii,  and California.


 The Temple of Doom (1984)

The Temple of Doom is probably my favorite of the Indiana Jones original trilogy.  It has so much suspense and really interesting things that caught my attention as a child, like a different religion, different clothing and they ate monkey brains!!!

This movie takes you through California, England, Arizona, China and Sri Lanka.



The Last Crusade  (1989)

The last of the original trilogy is also really good.  It made me really interested in the history of the Holocaust (I was a really nerdy child…).  It also made me really want to visit Venice and I thought of this movie when I finally got to go there.

This movie takes you to California, Colorado, Utah (Moab) , Italy, England, Spain, and Jordan (Petra).


Then Indiana Jones movies are definitely classics.  They are movies that should never be lost, and that I think will always inspire people to get out there and adventure!

What movies have inspired you guys to travel?
