You’ve probably realized that you can’t travel anywhere for a while now. The COVID-19 crisis has made you cancel your tickets to Bali and you will be staying home for the foreseeable future. But only if there was something to feed your inner wanderlust. Well, this is where the virtual world comes into the picture.
Lucky for us, there are hundreds of movies available online that we can watch to feel the spirit of travel even though we can’t step out of the house. Today, we will be talking about the best 5 movies that awaken the feeling of wanderlust –
1. Eat Pray Love
Cliched, but effective. This movie has been a travel and self-help mascot for years now, but only because it’s so great! After a painful divorce, an unhappy woman finds herself taking a journey around the world that will change her entire perspective about life. This movie is simply a legend!
2. The Darjeeling Limited
A comedy-drama film based on 3 brothers. After the death of their father, the brothers decide to take a train journey through India to re-establish their bond. It’s inspirational and emotional.
3. Into The Wild
This one will give you the feels of ‘The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari’, but in a different light. After graduation, a top student and athlete gives up all his possessions to go to Alaska and spend time in the wilderness. In this world of social media and materialistic possessions, this movie is all about what the human spirit needs rather than what the heart desires.
Although every remarkable travel journey comes from tragedy, Wild is no different. After undergoing a personal crisis, a woman takes on a solo hike for 1100 miles. This movie is gripping, meaningful and moving.
5. Before Sunrise
A young man and woman meet each other on the infamous Euro trip. Sparks fly and the romance swirls as they spend a romantic evening together in Vienna. As they begin to fall in love, they must also realize that this is the only night that they can be together.
Movies have the power to make your travel to different continents and imagine life in a new way. Use this quarantine period as an opportunity to experience it all!
