Favorite, "Road" movies:
When I first arrived in Bali, Bob Hope and Bing Corsby's Road Movies came to mind. Since then, I've been whisked away to favorite locations for a few hours by some of our all time favorite stars. As time goes by many more will come to mind, in addition to TV Series like "Doc Martin" in Cornwall. All available on NETFLIX.
