A writer's spontaneous three-week, round-the-world trip with a man she met on an online dating site is about to travel to the big screen.

Clara Bensen's essay "The Craziest OKCupid Date Ever" is being adapted into a film called "No Baggage," Variety reports.

In Bensen's story, which was published on Salon.com, she recounts traveling with a man named Jeff to eight countries in 21 days with no itineraries and no luggage -- not even a change of clothes.

"With no stuff, moving to the next destination was as simple as getting out of bed and pointing to a dot on the map," she wrote. "We jumped from city to city using almost every mode of transportation on earth: an old train along the Turkish coast, a giant ferry across the Aegean, a cramped bus through the Balkans, a series of hitches through Croatia, a flight to Edinburgh and a pair of bikes in London."

New Line Cinema picked up the movie rights to the Austin, Texas-based Bensen's story and has set up the project with Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot at their Offspring Entertainment banner, according to Variety. Adam Brooks ("Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason") will adapt the story for the screen.
