With the 92nd Academy Awards coming up this weekend, we've got movies on our mind! Cinema has the uncanny ability to transport you into a story and make you feel as if you are right there with the characters. Even with the invention of green screens and CGI, many filmmakers feel it is more authentic to film on-location, and location scouts spend hours upon hours scouring the planet for the perfect spot. From towering, snow-capped mountains to rolling, sun-toasted sand dunes, take a look at some of the movie settings that make us want to explore the world!
Here in the states, St. Patrick's Day is typically celebrated with parades, drinking, and wearing a ton of green - lest you be pinched for your non-festive atire! In Dublin, the color du jour is orange - the true color of the nation - and, of course, more drinking. Here you can learn about the celebration of St. Patrick around the world on the one day in which everyone can be Irish.
