Waiting for the New Normal

As we wait for the New Normal to arrive (hopefully soon), it’s important to reflect about the impact that travel has had on our lives through movies and television.  Now, more than ever, we are finding ways to entertain ourselves.  Travel has never been more important – though most of us can’t take a trip right now.   Let’s enjoy the destinations we hope to visit in the future. 

Here’s our shortlist, though endless cinematic destinations exist out there.  Maybe your students will come up with some of their own. Soon enough, we’ll be able to travel again and offer students a chance to explore our country and the world!
