Travel Movie of the Week : Eurotrip
I thought I would choose a fun travel movie for this week so, I decided to go with Eurotrip.
This isn’t the most inspirational or influential travel movie, but it’s funny and sometimes that’s what you need. I’ve watched this more times than I know and it never gets old.
Scotty lives in Ohio and has a German pen pal, Mieke, who he has always thought was a male. After highschool graduation, being dumped by his girlfriend, and very publicly finding out that she has been cheating on him, Scotty writes an email to Mieke telling “him” of his problems. Feeling sorry for him, Mieke suggests they meet. Scotty tells Mieke to stay away from him, thinking it’s weird a guy wants to meet up with him. After finding out that Mieke is actually a girl, he desperately tries to contact her with no luck and decides to head to Germany to find her.
Scott and his best friend Cooper head off to Europe and also run into sister and brother, Jenny and Jamie who are their friends from home, along the way and they end up joining them. Their trip through Europe takes them to London, Paris, Amsterdam, Bratislava, Berlin and Rome with some hilarious, yet awkward and embarrassing situations along the way.
If you want to laugh while also being inspired to take your own Eurotrip, you should definitely check out this movie. Sometimes, we don’t need the deep influential movies–we simply just need to have a little humor in our lives.
Have you ever seen Eurotrip? Have any travel movie suggestions for me?
