Eat, Pray, LoveIf you or someone you know has ever studied abroad in college -- or "Study a broad" as my father unfortunately called it -- you've certainly heard or experienced the trope about "finding yourself" in some far-off, exotic land. While travel affords the opportunity to learn and explore different cultures in a direct, visceral way, it can also set up the premise that one must journey far outside their comfort zone to discover how their life "should be."

In the new trailer for 'Eat, Pray, Love,' based on the 2006 memoir 'Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search For Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia' by Elizabeth Gilbert, Julia Roberts plays Gilbert, a thirtysomething writer unhappy with her marriage who decides to divorce her husband and spend the next year traveling the world. The book, which chronicled her four months each in Italy, India and Bali, struck a nerve with those feeling lost in life and became a smash, Oprah-endorsed hit.
