7 Awesome Times Travel Movies, To Watch While Stuck In Quarantine, Coronavirus

7 Awesome Times Travel Movies, You Should Watch While Stuck In Quarantine!

You are home, isolated, I am home, isolated. Well so is Tom Hanks, Idris Elba and literally almost everyone in the world. Thinking about the world we are currently living in, feels surreal. It is a unique situation when some of the world’s biggest economies are in lockdown, thousands of people have lost their lives, the majority of the population has no choice but to restrict themselves at homes. Well, regardless of how much we question this, it is the truth. And we got to do what we have to do. So why not make the best of it? Take a cinematic break during this coronavirus crisis and watch these best time travel movies.

So far one thing is absolutely clear from the ongoing corona crisis, that overcoming this pandemic is a marathon, not a sprint. Thus, we might be stuck in our homes for a while. But it doesn’t have to so boring, and frustrating. Thankfully, there are awesome time travel movies that will have you flying from years, decades and dimensions. So let’s delve in.

Got your popcorn? Ready for your mind to be blown? Alright! Here is the list of my top 10-time travel movies of all time, in no order :




1. The Time Traveler’s Wife

Some criticized this movie for being silly but I think it is an interesting ride. This romantic sci-fi, released in 2009, starring Eric Bana and Rachel Mcadams, is definitely a rule breaker.

Henry ( Eric Bana’s character) is a time traveler, due to a rare genetic which forces him to live life on shifting timeline with little or no control. Despite this, Clare (Rachel McAdams’s character) is determined to build a ‘normal’ life with a man she has loved her entire life. This movie is sensual, romantic, and sweet. It will take you to a wonderful journey of fate, love, and family.

IMDB Rating: 7.1/10

2. Interstellar

Directed by the legend Christopher Nolan. Winner of an Academy Award for best visuals. Features Matthew McConaughey, Timothรฉe Chalamet, Anne Hathaway,
Jessica Chastain and many more. Do you need more reasons to watch this epic time travel movie? Probably not but still hear me out.

The movie is based dystopian future where the entire human race is struggling to survive. A group of astronauts travels through a wormhole near Saturn in search of a new abode for humanity. The entire plot runs through the murphy law “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong”. It showcases family struggle, dealing with separation, a beautifully emotional father/daughter relationship, and above all how precious the time is.



Interstellar is easily one of my favorite time travel movies. It is intriguing, moving and fascinating.

IMDB Ratings: 8.6/10

3. Back to the Future

No list to the best time travel movies could be complete without mentioning the timeless classic, Back to the Future. Although the second and the third are greatly entertaining, the original ( 1985) still wins the top spot. Based in the 80s, a young Californian boy Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) is thrown back into the ’50s thanks to an experiment by his eccentric scientist friend Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) and jeopardizes his own future.

So if you are looking for a tickling 2 hours, filled with rock n roll family adventure comedy, you must watch back to the future. In the field of sci-fi comedy, this movie is truly is the gold standard, difficult to be surpassed.

IMDB Ratings: 8.5/10

4. The Lake House

Okay, I love Sandra Bullock! But that’s not the only reason why this movie is a must-watch. As cliche as it may sounds, but The Lake House, makes you fall in love with the ‘magic of love’.



The film is based upon two characters, Kate ( Sandra Bullock), a doctor living in 2006 and Alex ( Keanu Reeves), a middle-class architect living in 2004. The central conceit of the film showcases how these two people are able to communicate and fall in love via a magical mailbox at the lake house they have both lived in different times of their lives.

IMDB Ratings: 6.8/10

5. The Terminator

Who hasn’t heard of the Terminator franchise?

So I am not a big fan of the action genre. But I thoroughly enjoyed watching this series. Directed and co-written by James Cameron, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, the first part is set in 1984.

An indestructible cyborg killing machine (Arnold) is sent from the post-apocalyptic future where the machines have overtaken the world, with a mission to kill Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton). This film is action jammed, moves in a cracking pace and efficiently shows a future where humankind is struggling in the war against machines.

IMDB Ratings: 8/10

 6. Doctor Strange

In this Marvel franchise, doctor strange or Stephen Strange ( Benedict Cumberbatch’s character) becomes a great sorcerer and as you would aspect, is tasked with saving the world. What sets this film apart is the layers of uncertainty brought by Cumberbatch’s character.

The movie is visually distinctive, has brilliant CGI effects and Cumberbatch’s performance are all good reasons to give this movie a shot.

IMDB Ratings: 7.5/10

7. 13 Going on 30

Easily one of my favorite time travel movies is ’13 going on 30′. The title says it all. It is a story of a 13-year-old girl, who wishes to turn 30 on her birthday. And miraculously her wish comes true.

The protagonist, Jennifer garner was enormously hilarious and touching at the same time. She wonderfully captured the innocence of a child in an adult’s body. It’s a sweet romantic comedy, giving the message of compassion while dealing with the issues of growing up. There are incidents, maybe in bits and pieces which I am sure we all can relate to while we were growing up. It makes you realize that being an adult is not about what you have but what you really are.

IMDB Ratings: 6.1/10

Though all these are amazing films, there are plenty of other wonderful movies on time travel. But in all fairness, most of the time travel movies are great. And since we can’t practically time-travel or even ‘travel’ at the moment, I guess watching these movies is the next best thing.

Here are 7 Best European Places To Visit In July

  • Porto, Portugal: “A Colorful Town To Get Lost in”
  • Budapest, Hungary: “The Paris Of The East”
  • Prague, Czechia: “The Golden City Of One Hundred Spires”

  • Florence, Italy: “If Italy were Mona Lisa then Florence would be her smile”

1. Porto, Portugal

Number one on our list of best places to travel in July in Europe is Porto. Porto is a fascinating, colorful and vibrant city. Situated on the river Duoro, with art nouveau cafes, medieval architecture, defining Dom Luis I Bridge, and wine cellars, it has something for everyone.

July (and August) mark the peak summertime in Porto when the entire country basks in the summer sunshine. With an average high of 25C and a low of 16C, summers make a perfect time to enjoy Porto beaches. Thanks to the town’s proximity to the Atlantic ocean, Porto’s enjoys the biggest drop in temperature during the night.

Another reason why Porto is a desired place to travel in July is WINE. If you are a wine lover like me, nothing could be better than being in a Port wine capital, tasting some finest Porto wines at various wine cellars, or enjoying a local Portuguese specialty at one of many terrace diners.

Must-See Places: Luรญs I Bridge, Livraria Lello, Ribeira Square, Clรฉrigos Church, and Port Wine.


2. Budapest, Hungary

Another great European city to visit in July is Budapest. Budapest is undoubtedly one of the best-value cities in the world. Rightly known as “The Paris Of The East”, Budapest draws millions of visitors every year. Made up of two cities on each side of the river Danube, the Hungarian Capital is rich in history and culture. Its beautiful architecture, elegant boulevards, and bustling streets are bound to take any visitor’s heart away.

Though July is one of the hottest months in Budapest, it also brings in many advantages. I couldn’t suggest a better way to escape the summer heat than soaking in the outdoor baths and pools. In fact, Budapest is sometimes referred to as ‘the city of baths’, as it has more than 100 natural springs beneath it.

Apart from a zillion of Spa parties in Szechenyi Baths, you can also attend tons of summer concerts happening in June and July in Budapest. Many ruin bars and pubs set up temporary open-air arrangements during summer, and to add to the entertainment, they combine it with live music, open terraces, and โ€˜tasting toursโ€™.

All in all, if you are looking to have a crazy- fun summer, visiting Budapest in July is a great option.

3. Vienna, Austria

Number three on our list of best places to travel in July is Vienna.No city expounds elegance and grandeur like the capital of Austria. From the imperial architecture of bygone eras to traditional stupendous coffeehouses, from musical masterpieces to epicurean inspired design scenes, Vienna makes for a superb summer break.

I don’t think in particular there is a bad time to visit Vienna, but summer is special. Though July (and august) are gloriously hot, they also guarantee plenty of fun activities around the city. In summer, outdoor seating pop up around Viennaโ€™s bars, cafรฉs, and coffeehouses.

July also is the high season for Vienna’s wine taverns. This means you can enjoy tons of spritzers (local homegrown wine) especially in the low hills of Nussdorf and Grinzing, Vienna.

In Summer, the city also holds it’s best food fair and the biggest seasonal event, the annual film and food festival in front of the City Hall (Rathaus). The atmosphere is electric, with food stalls selling specialties from all corners of the world and of course Vienna.

Vienna is celebrated as ‘World’s capital of Music’. Waltzes and operettas have their home in Vienna. Though music concerts happen all year round, you can definitely enjoy some of the best ones in July. Find the details here.

Jazz fan? Checkout Vienna Jazz Festival, attended by many international and local famed Jazz artists.

4. Florence, Italy

The next addition to our list of 7 best places to travel in July in Europe is Florence. Florence is an incredible city. Frankly, it will be ideal to visit Tuscany’s capital in off-seasons when it is less crowded but sometimes a summer holiday in Italy is too much to resist.

Once ranked as the most beautiful city by the Forbes magazine, Florence or Firenze as dubbed by the locals, explodes with monuments, museums, culture, and renaissance art. Location wise it holds an advantage as well. Situated in the center of the Tuscan region, it is an ideal base for many day trips like Pisa, San Gamigio, Sienna, other small towns and many fabulous wineries.

What a better way to beat the summer heat, than indulging in delicious cold gelato? In fact, Florence is rumored to be the birthplace of gelato. You can find gelato shops in literally every street and piazza.

July also promises many other fun activities in and around Florence. From music festivals to medieval fairs, food festivals to exhibits, and zillions of other breathtaking experiences. Florence is one place you should definitely include if you are visiting Europe in July.

Must-Do Activities in Florence: Have tons of Gelato, Visit Dumo, Uffizi Gallery, Piazzale Michelangelo, Galleria dell’Accademia, and Ponte Vecchio.


5. Berlin, Germany

Another amazing destination to travel to in July in Berlin. Berlin is a busy city all year round, but unlike other European destinations, it is quite spread out. Which means it never feels overwhelming. Summer brings in long sunny days, outdoor activities, open-air festivals, beer gardens galore, cultural events, and more.

Though it is fun throughout the year, summers indeed are the best season to visit the German capital. July relatively experiences low tourists ( compared to other European destinations like Vatican and Rome), temperature ranges anywhere around 35C, with cool mornings and evenings and best of all, Berliners seem to be a little more happy and friendly in summer.

With outdoor cafes, pools, beer gardens, parks, lakefronts, and beach bars, Berlin is definitely one of the best cities to evade summer heat.

May, June, and July are also festival months in Berlin. With CSD (The Berlin Pride Celebration) and the aforementioned Karneval der Kulturen, happening every year between May and July, Berlin is the place to go to if you are looking to have a fantastic chill-out summer.

6. Prague, Czech Republic

“The ancient splendor and beauty of Prague, a city beyond compare, left an impression on my imagination that will never fade” – Richard Wagner. I feel nothing illustrates the beauty of Prague better than these gorgeous lines. It is a city of splendid vistas, world-class architecture, history, and truly made of golden spires, for which it is known for.

Prague is one of the most popular tourist destinations, which obviously means it is busy all year round. July is high season month, so you can expect a huge number of people around the main attractions, but it is also the best month to travel to Prague in terms of weather. With warm, but mostly not hot afternoons, cool but mostly not chilly nights, the weather can’t get better than July.

Summer (July) also brings in a high number of fun summer concerts and cultural festivals like Prague Proms and new Prague dance festivals. So the buzzing nightlife, rich and varied history, and good weather, undeniably put Prague among the best places to visit in July in Europe.

7. Lisbon, Portugal

Situated at the mouth of the Tagus river, Portugal’s coastal capital is charismatic and vibrant. Overflowing with historic landmarks, riveting culture, and delicious food, Lisbon is one of the top places to travel in July. Whether you are traveling with family or alone, this city will welcome you with an open heart. And best of all, it is very affordable.

Blessed with a glorious climate all year round, Lisbon attracts visitors every season. July tends to be the hottest month with an average temperature ranging anywhere between 18C – 28C. However, the heat gets tempered by the cool north sea breeze, one of the reasons why many travelers in Europe come to Lisbon for their summer break.

With nice weather, summer draws oodles of outdoor activities, concerts, and festivals. Like Festival ao Largo, a free outdoor classical music festival, Super Bock Super Rock, a 3 day of rock and roll music with loads of beer and internationally renowned musicians, and NOS alive, ranked among the top 12 European music festivals.

With so much to do, see and experience, Lisbon is one destination you shouldn’t miss if you are visiting Europe in summer.

Basic Guidelines
  • Use between 20-30 Hashtags: According to new Instagram algorithm, you can use up to 30 hashtags on insta post and up to 10 on insta story. I usually use 20 and have seen tremendous growth.
  • Use relevant Hashtags: It’s not about “getting seen by a lot of people but be seen by the right people”. If you have the practice to use the same list of hashtags for every post, please Don’t do it. This can negatively affect engagement and the following. Instead, I will suggest adding 4-5 new hashtags, relevant to every new post.



  • Use Location-specific Hashtags: These are great as Instagram loooveee specific hashtags. This can drive niche users to your profile. Tag the city/country/place you are at, tag the cafes/restaurants/bars, or describe any specific activity you are doing.
  • Use Popular Hashtags: As long as they are relevant to your post, use them. I usually look for hashtags with 30k to 500k posts roughly. You can also find some really good suggestions for related tags in the top bar.
  • Use Tags In A Comment Instead Of Caption: Putting 20-30 tags together in a caption can look cluttery and spammy. Instead, use the comment section to add some tags.

Here you will find a thorough list of travel Hashtags under different categories. Just remember to pick 20-30 relevant tags, use 4-5 location-specific tags, and preferably use some in a comment section.

How To Make Friends In A New City While Traveling Solo?

Awesome Ways To Make Friends While Traveling Alone

How To Make Freinds In A New City When You Are Traveling Alone: 8 Awesome Ways

After coming back from my first solo trip, the question I got asked the most was “How did you make friends in a new city? Does it get lonely being by yourself all the time?

Well, the answer to the second question is NO because I am not always by-myself while traveling. And perhaps that is my favorite part of going solo because you never know who you are going to meet. I won’t be exaggerating if I tell you I made more friends on my first solo trip than in 25 years of my life. And after reading this blog on ‘how to make friends in a new city when you are traveling alone’, you will understand why.

Solo traveling has a certain allure to it, doesnโ€™t it? Being in a different city or country, away from the usual chaos of life, sitting in a random cozy coffee shop, reading your favorite novel, or biking on gorgeous narrow cobbled streets in Europe, your hair blowing away in the wind or sleeping under the stars somewhere in the Pacific. Just You, without having to accommodate anyone. Eating what you want, sleeping where you want, going to sights you want to go to, completely free, living your dream. Well yes, Solo travel is all thatโ€ฆ

But it does get lonely at times!

While growing up, I was fascinated by traveling movies and stories. I still vividly remember watching Julia Roberts in โ€˜Eat, Pray, Loveโ€™, going on a solo adventure, leaving her life in the USA behind for a new life in Italy, Bali, and India. It was everything I could ever dream of but still, it was only a fond illusion. As I grew up, I realized it was not my job, money or time that was holding me back. But the fear of being alone.

I am an introvert turned extrovert, thanks to solo travel. I understand how hard, awkward, and frankly, scary it could be to make new friends. Striking up a conversation with a random stranger in a foreign land is exciting but can also be daunting for some people.

If one thing my solo travels have taught me is that itโ€™s not that difficult. Trust me, itโ€™s far easier to make friends in a new city especially if you are alone than it would be if you are traveling with someone. I shouldnโ€™t have been so worried if only I knew how easy it was. 

I usually use the below tricks whenever I am in a new city or country traveling by myself:

PS- Before we get on to how to make friends in a new city a quick reminder to get your travel insurance.

I never ever travel abroad without travel insurance. Really! In case something goes wrong, you must have travel insurance. Frankly speaking, it will be stupid to head off to a new destination without one.

I will recommend World Nomads. Simply because they are backed by reputable insurers, 24-hour assistance providers and offer travel insurance to travelers from over 140 countries.

Even if you donโ€™t get one from World Nomads, make sure to get your travel insurance sorted before you actually start traveling.


Alright so let’s get to the fun part, something you have been waiting for…..How To Make Friends In A New City When You Are Traveling Alone:

Stay In A Hostel

This is my number one piece of advice to anyone reading this article. Hostels donโ€™t necessarily have to be a dormitory. Depending on your budget and the kind of comfort you prefer, choose a private or a shared room. Regardless, hostels are the easiest and probably the best way to meet new people.

Awesome friends, I met in my hostel In Berlin

A decent hostel will usually organize meetups, group activities and events which are perfect icebreakers and a great way to meet fellow travelers. If you are sharing a room, talk to your roommate. You might find your new BFF. If not, chances are you will make a good friend. 

Hang out in common areas like kitchen, bar or a lounge. Too shy to start a conversation? Itโ€™s okay! Just smile and say Hi. You never know what a simple โ€˜Hiโ€™ can lead to. 

To find the best hostels in a new city, I usually use Booking.com. I love this website for many reasons but most importantly you can cancel your booking penalty-free. Also, there are no hidden fees, so the prices displayed are the prices you pay. Plus they have an active review system. So you can be assured about the property you are booking.


Sign Up For Free Walking Tours!

I love walking tours. Not only are they a great way to learn about a new place but give an opportunity to meet like-minded people. During my Europe travel, I took so many walking tours. Sometimes hostels organize them, or you can check online for companies. Usually, they are in English making it easy to chat with other people as you walk from place to place. 

PS. donโ€™t be scared to accept invites, you get from other travelers. Check with your tour guide for suggestions to hang out later. Maybe invite them for coffee or a drink.

Some Such Walking Tours For Your Referral:

Free Tours by Foot, provides licensed, local, freelance tour guides in Europe, USA, and Canada.

Free Tourย in Dublin, Budapest, Barcelona, Berlin, Prague, and London.

Yo Tours In 15 cities in India.


Social Media Apps!

My number 3 advice on how to make friends in a new city would be Social Media Apps.

I have used Tinder (yes, itโ€™s more than a dating app) and Bumble BFF. While my experience with tinder was okay, I met two of my closest friends in Prague through Bumble. Download the app, sign up, and start swiping. Itโ€™s that simple. They use GPS tracking to find other people who are also looking to make new friends.

Apart from that, you can also use couch-surfing. Personally, I have never used it but a lot of solo travelers I know have and they recommend it.


Airbnb Experience!

Airbnb is more than a lodging platform. You can find tons of activities like live music, photography, cooking and more here. Almost all cities you visit will have this. Conducted by locals, usually in a group setting, thus offering an opportunity to bond with other people. I really enjoy these experiences, not only is it an excellent way to meet new people but a chance to dive into new cultures and learn new skills. Read More Here.

If you are new to Airbnb, use my code to get 40$ off on your first booking.




Pub Crawls

If this is something you are into, I advise doing it in the first few days of your trip. I mostly use Get Your Guide to find top-rated pub crawls and other such tours. So far my experience has been awesome. I will totally recommend it.

You will meet tons of solo travelers and make few friends very early in your journey. Even if you donโ€™t hit it off with any traveler, talk to your pub crawl leader. He/she can advise cool places to hang out at, as most likely they will be living in the same town. Ask them about good spots for solo travelers.

Sign Up For Events & Meet Ups

Whether you are an adventurous person who likes bungee jumping or paragliding, or something completely different like sipping a glass of wine while discussing your favorite book. No matter your interest, you will always find something you are into. Look for such events and sign up.

I went for a language exchange event while in Rome. Although I still canโ€™t speak Italian but made some really cool friends.

You can use the MeetUp app to look for local meetup groups depending on your preferred genre, from art and culture, games, LGBTQ, photography or anything else. 

Other Apps You Might Find Helpful:

Eventbrite, All Events in City, 10Times, Ticketmaster, and Unation. There are many more. Just google but make sure to check reviews of each before going ahead with any bookings.




Have A Meal With A Local!

Nothing could be a better way to experience the local culture than sharing a meal with locals. If you are lucky you might get invited for dinner by your Airbnb host or random people you happened to develop a connection with during your trip. I feel chances for these are thin but fortunately, there are apps you can use for such experience. Eat With and BonAppetour is popular ones in Europe. PlateCulture is good if traveling within southeast Asia.

If you have any dietary restrictions, communicate with the host and most likely they will provide as per your preference.


During Transit!

My last but not least tip on how to make friends in a new city, will be during transit. Not a typical way but I have met interesting people while flying. Say if you are traveling to a popular destination, chances are you will meet some other traveler. I mean people from all walks of life travel and you never know who might be sitting next to you. The same thing applies to buses, trains or any other local transport. 


Few General Tips On Making Friends In A New City:-ย 

Ask Questions:ย If you are struggling to start a conversation, ask travel-related questions like where you are from? where have you been? where are you going?ย 

Invite/Accept invite:ย Say โ€˜Yesโ€™ if someone invites you or ask them if you can tag along? Just follow your instinct. If it feels safe and okay, go for it. I get it, not everyone is an extrovert but saying yes can open a possibility to amazing connections and experiences.ย 

Go out Alone: Itโ€™s okay to go out by yourself. Chat with strangers. Obviously keep basic safety in mind like donโ€™t get hammered, avoid dark secluded alleyways but have a good time. Remember, when you are abroad, you are already a cool and exotic person to them, if you have a friendly vibe, people will want to get to know you. 



Smile: Just keep an open mind and a sweet smile. SMILE DOESNโ€™T COST A DIME after all.

Just like trying new things, traveling alone looks daunting. Plus having to make new friends feels like another ball game. But itโ€™s easier than it looks. You are living the life which most people only dream of. Make the best of itโ€ฆ

I hope you meet some amazing people on the way and have great memories for life! Donโ€™t let your fear hold you back!!

HOSTELWORLD

  1. You probably must have heard of this one. As the name suggest, its a great platform to look for the hostels as per your budget. My favourite thing about this app is the basic filters it offers like location preferences, no cost bookings, the RATINGS. This is something I always look for specially the reviews by other solo travellers. If you are a budget traveler like me and looking for quality hostels to stay at, Hostelworld great app for solo travellers.

Official Website

BOOKING.COM

I am putting this one on my list of apps for solo travellers because of few reasons. If you are looking for both budget friendly hotels/hostels with specific recommendations for solo travellers, try Booking.com. Apart from the basic features like ratings, reviews, no cost bookings, cool thing about this app is that it shows real pictures of rooms/dorms you are booking. Its a great plus if you are booking a hostel because sometimes you don’t get the room/bed you saw on the website. Trust me, this has happened with me and nothing can be more annoying. I would really recommend this app for solo travellers.

If you are looking for a homestay without having to pay for lodging, this is an app for you. Its completely based on social networking. So basically you sign up, give introductions about you ,connect with other people and look for the willing local host at your travel destination. Its a good way to meet local people. I have used this app few times and no bad experiences so far but I still prefer staying at hostel just because of the surety of people and place.

AIRBNB

I am sure you know about this app but I still want to mention this. Great for homestay lodging. The only thing I don’t like about this company is that they don’t offer 0 cost bookings.

I usually use this for experiences like local cooking class, photography, meet ups, or just about anything else. They have great options at reasonable price. Also its a great way to meet people if you are traveling solo.

I absolutely love this app. If you are looking to find bargain fares specially for international flights, download Momondo. I have been using this for over an year now. I still usually do a thorough research before booking my flights & haven’t found anything cheaper than what this website offers. Try it yourself.I feel its should be one of the must apps for solo travellers.

If you are traveling within Europe or planning your trip, DOWNLOAD this app. Seriously DO IT. I got to know about this through a fellow traveler in Europe and I can’t thank him enough. This saved me so much time and money. What it does is compare the different train, bus and flight routes available between the two destinations based on time & fare. So you don’t have to check multiple websites for the same.
