saw Richard Linklater’s Before Sunrise well before I started traveling a lot, but it’s hard to understate how much this movie changed my outlook on travel and love. It may very well be the most romantic travel movie ever made, and, yet, it somehow manages to avoid almost every tired romance and romantic-comedy movie cliche, which is an impressive feat. There isn’t a travel-experienced guy on Earth who hasn’t wished to meet Julie Delpy on a train somewhere in the world and then fall in love with her during a night in one of the world’s most beautiful cities.
