2020 has been a very strange year. In the wake of the corona virus, it feels like the grim reaper has been closer than usual. Today is the day of remembering the dead. I recently visited a cemetery in my home town, where I found some structures that reminded me of the Père-Lachaise cemetery in Paris.

I’ve been back in Paris again, one of my favorite cities on the planet. One of the advantages of repeated visits to a place is the leisure pace of awe and discovery while drifting slowly down the worn streets of the French capital. Just skip the Eiffel tower and endless queues to attractions, replacing it with whatever feels good at the moment.
Since two of my biggest interests are traveling and movies, one might guess that I’m naturally attracted to films with a touch of travel inspiration. Here are a few of my favorite examples, most of which I have visited the recording site location.

I’m back in the city of lights. Paris, one of the cities I love returning to. During the nineties I got lost in the northeastern suburbs. During the 00s I sang from the stage of Moulin Rouge and imitated Quasimodo the hunchback in Place des Vosges. For some strange reason they decided to let me back in and here I am.
Being a movie buff, I tend to visit movie locations when I travel. As I got back from Marseille, where I followed in the footsteps of French Connection and Love Actually, I thought of putting together a list with some of my favorite visits during the years. Featured: Lost in Translation, Parts Unknown, French Connection, Lord of the Rings, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Le fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain, La Dolce Vita, Highlander, Talented Mr Ripley, Interview with the Vampire, The Beach, Rendition, Mission Impossible, Moulin Rouge.
This is the story of Merhan Karimi Nasseri and why he lived in Terminal 1 of Charles de Gaulle airport for 16 years. The movie The Terminal from 2004 was based on his story but the movie script was a bit different.
Le Fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain is a great movie and one of the most romantic Paris movies ever made. Unfortunately the authors Anna-Lena Brundin and Katrin Jakobsen pun the successful movie without any particular reason, except for a shameless publicity stunt.
