Some of the earliest stories written told of heroes traveling to new vistas; it should be no surprise that so many travel movies have been released. Each film tackles different elements of travel.

Did you know French (mostly Parisian) people call Paris Paname, when they are talking about it as an exotic place? Well, Paris is an exotic place, especially if you've never been there, you probably romanticize it (or not). And in reality it has so much history and hidden gems that it is a treasury that has no end; it keeps going on and on. And if you are going to Paris, thinking about going to Paris or dreaming about going to Paris someday, I would love you to see it the way I do, because Paris is more than only the Eiffel Tower and The Arc de Triomphe (although these are nice places too).
