This Week’s Travel Inspiration: Thelma & Louise

Each week, I’ll be recommending a movie, t.v. show, book, or song, to help you feel inspired to travel! 

This week’s travel inspiration is brought to you by the movie, Thelma and Louise (1991).  Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon set out for a two-day vacation away from their homes and hubbies in Arkansas.  Taking off in Louise’s ’66 Ford Thunderbird convertible, the ladies have a great time, stopping for a drink at a roadhouse.  Thelma lands in a dangerous situation with a new stranger Harlan, and pretty soon the ladies are running from the law across the great American southwest.  This intelligent and ambitious feminist film helps to portray a range of emotions while riding out this great adventure we call life.

I’ve attached the trailer below, but I truly recommend watching the full movie, you won’t regret it!
