Best Film Locations To Visit In Europe

TravelWithBriggsy

Visiting those locations where you know your favourite films have been set has become a habit of mine. There is something about watching a movie then wanting to stand and re-enact the scenes or imagine yourself doing it anyway. As most big blockbuster films are located in the US, and normally filmed outside of Europe, I have found some of the biggest and my favourite films that are filmed in Europe.

Batman Begins

The film starring Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Liam Neeson and directed by Christopher Nolan has taken a less cheesy and more serious role of Batman, following more to the Marvel comic books then the batman film series before. One of the locations of this film, was the Vatnajokull Glacier in Iceland, and used as the setting in the mountains where Ra’s al Ghuls (Liam Neeson) temple was held.

About Travelling Coral

I started blogging in 2011 to record some of the highlights of the round the world trip I made with my husband Phil. On the 5 month trip we visited California, New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, Malaysia and Thailand. We met some fantastic people, saw amazing things and ate some lovely food. Yet while enjoying these new experiences I became acutely aware of the inequality in both first and third world countries. The gap between the rich and the poor on the streets of LA and KL was the same. On my return home, I realised that this inequality existed in the UK. I had to leave the country to see it for what it was. Food banks were opening in every town and city. I read the now famous blog, A Girl Called Jack and got more interested in how food poverty impacts the lives of so many people in my home country. And I got angry. And wanted to do something about it. Now, I work for Smethwick CAN, a charity bringing people together to tackle poverty, increase aspiration, provide opportunity and support the most vulnerable. One of the projects is a foodbank. Food poverty is shocking in any country, yet over a third of edible food still ends up in landfill. No one should go hungry, yet children are going to school without breakfast. Parents are skipping meals to feed their children. Foodbanks are a sticking plaster not a cure for food poverty. So, in addition to working for a charity that is supporting people in crisis, I volunteer for The Real Junk Food Project. They intercept food that would normally be thrown away, and cook it and serve it in a Pay as You Feel Cafe. I am still adjusting to life back at home in Birmingham, England, I have terminal Farsickness. To keep it at bay, I drag my husband and sometimes the son on shorter trips both in the UK and overseas. I now post random stuff that interests me. This includes travel, food and well being. The writing keeps me sane. Long term travelling is my goal.
