Films can cause different types of feelings and can inspire you to accomplish dreams, do a good deed or, simply, leave your house and explore new places. Here I listed 10 films t will inspire you to travel next weekend:
Into the Wild
Within traveling stories, this is my favorite one. Based on true events, it tells the story of a young man who makes the decision to travel alone to Alaska, only carrying a backpack and few objects; through his journey and stay in this place, he experiences many situations. In the end, this film leaves us a lesson: happiness is only real when shared.
This is an animated film that tells the story of an elderly man, who achieves the dream of his life: to hook his house to balloons in order to fly South America.
This is one of those films that you say, “I will not cry, I will not cry” … but eventually, it happens.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
This is the first part of the trilogy of The Hobbit. Based on the book of the same name, it shows us a journey full of challenges for Bilbon Baggins, Gandalf and other characters. Throughout this film you will see incredible landscapes.
Following her divorce, the death of her mother and her self-destructive behavior, Cheryl Strayed decides to walk more than a thousand kilometers to find herself.
The Big Fish
If I had to describe this film in one word, it would be “fascinating”. Edward Bloom tells some stories of his life (adding some fantasy) before passing away: the places he visited when young, the people he met, among other experiences.
Midnight in Paris
Another amazing movie, full of magic! This film shows one of the most romantic cities in the world. It inspires you to travel to different places, as it gives you the chance to see a remote city and visualize how it was in the past.
The Motorcycle Diaries
A young Guevara travels with his friend Alberto throughout the Americas, looking for some fun and adventure.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

On a trip to Thailand, Richard discovers the existence of a mythical island called paradise, and he starts his way to it.
Pirates of the Caribbean
In all the films of this saga, Captain Jack Sparrow is the main character who travels and experiences incredible adventures! A great plus of these films are the gorgeous locations.
The vast majority of these films remind me of something very important: dreams are meant to be lived! If you watch one of these movies and you feel the urge to travel, do it! Pack your bags and become the next star of a great story! Sometimes you just need a little push.
