Travel has inspired many to document not only their journeys but also journeys of their friends or their relatives. And when it comes to the arts and travel, there is no better way to showcase a place than through a book or a movie. Reading a book on new places or even watching a place you haven’t visited instantly inspires wanderlust and makes you wish you were there at that moment. It makes you want to pack your bags and explore the region. If you’re like me, chained to the office desk, with no travel plans on the horizon, these movies prove to be one of the best outlets for that travel desire.
Apart from showing you a place up, close, and personal, travel movies also teach you loads about the region in terms of the culture, the food, the lifestyle, the way of the locals, and much more. They can also help you plan an itinerary and also show you what are the activities you can do in a particular place. And while there are millions of travel movies out there, once a while you come across one that stays with you for a long, long time. Here’s taking a look at some of the best travel moves that are suited for every type of traveller. It’ll make you want to pack your bags and run away into the unknown. Seriously!
