Part of the fun of watching a really great TV show or movie is to be transported to all of the fantastic locations the actors and crew get to travel to. You probably hear the great stories of shows setting up production in Budapest or Ireland, and films going to Iceland or Egypt in order to create the most immersive experience possible.

To say it gives everyone travel envy is a bit of an understatement — we want to see amazing waterfalls and castles in person too.

Well, this may just be the next best thing. One blogger decided to actually do something about her desire to scope out some of those memorable movie and show locations.

Hamburg native Andrea David has been chasing some of her favourite film and TV locations around the globe for a dozen years now, combining her love of cinematography and film with her background as a former travel agent. Naturally, she started capturing it all through some pretty memorable photos back in 2014, which she now shares on her website and on Instagram.


In each of her photos, David matches a picture of the actual scene in question with the gorgeous scenery surrounding her, really highlighting just what each spot brought to the overall film or show.


“I was particularly fascinated by the different motives and longings people have for traveling to another place. So, after completing my studies, inspired by a trip to Scotland and the chance encounter with some well-known locations, I explored the influence of movies and TV shows on the choice of destination,” David writes on her site. “With the surprising wealth of examples and as a great film fan, I quickly came to the taste, now and again targeted film locations to visit.”


Today, David has compiled trip information for fellow film and TV travel junkies from more than 500 projects. Her trips have garnered the interest of publicists too, and she now examines potential new films and TV shows at screenings to see if they’ll be a fit for her page before embarking on her next adventure.


So how does she finance it all? Commissions and affiliate links are certainly a help, while some of her trips are paid for through tourism offices, hotels, TV stations and other tour operators. She also freelances for some websites and publications to round it all out.


All in all, that’s not a bad way to make your way around the world, huh? Wish I’d have thought of it first, though.
