These days, we encourage you to keep your spirit high and your travels safe. We say, why not enjoying this Netflix and Chill time, plus enjoy movies that will help you travel the world …from home. Here are 10 movies about travel and journeys to watch on Netflix
We’re quite big movie fans and it was hard to pick only ten. Europe has so many wonderful cities to discover, but we also wanted to dip our toes in other continents. That’s why we’ve added wonderful places in America and Asia, too. Don’t worry, there won’t be any spoiler alerts. Enjoy!
Let’s travel to America
Into the Wild – Alaska, USA
Sometimes, the journey is the destination and the best movie to begin our digital exploration is Into the Wild, set in Alaska. It’s based on a true story – and a book – and invites us all to discover how it would be living in the wilderness…and also follow our dreams.
Wild – Pacific Crest Trail, Northwest, USA
What would you do if you found yourself at a crossroads? What do you do when you need to cope with life events? That’s what Cheryl Strayed, or Reese Witherspoon, shows us when she decides to embark on the adventure of a lifetime, walking the Pacific Crest Trail in Wild.
Let’s discover Asia
Lost in Translation – Tokyo, Japan
The best movies are those that stir some buzz, that get you out of your comfort zone and into chasing life. Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson’s classic drama lets us discover a beautiful city, but it also reminds us to pay attention to other travellers.
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel – Jaipur, India
There aren’t many movies that play with all your senses, but this is one of them. When getting to know the characters, you’ll see you’ve already fallen in love with the city. It has this relaxing, exotic, charm, that’s perfect for tumultuous times.
Eat Pray Love – Bali, Indonesia
If you’re looking for a personal discovery journey, where somebody travels from A to B to learn an important life lesson, look no further than Eat, Pray, Love. The movie features Hollywood’s sweetheart, Julia Roberts, as she takes off on a round-the-world journey and ends up falling for Bali, Indonesia.
Let’s love Europe
Under the Tuscan Sun – Tuscany, Italy
Some people like adventures, others like romance and while some enjoy new journeys, we can’t help but look into the classics. Under the Tuscan Sun is a great opportunity to think about the chances that life offers and how lucky we are to be living today.
Amelie – Paris, France
The movie’s tagline is “She’ll change your life” and that’s both true about the storyline, as it is about the French film. If you’re looking to expand your horizons while enjoying each and every frame, this movie offers some of the best locations in Paris.
P.S. I Love You – Wicklow Mountains, Ireland
If you’re looking for more serious movies, this romantic drama will make you bring close those tissues. It has some comedy here and there, but it will make you appreciate life and what you’ve got. Starring Hilary Swank, it’s a great opportunity to discover Europe’s hidden gems.
Vicky Cristina Barcelona – Barcelona, Spain
Summer, friends travel to Barcelona, art, wine and good food join the party, but also love, lovers and ex-wives. It’s an interesting movie and it will make you see why Woody Allen’s work received an Oscar for it.
The secret life of Walter Mitty – Greenland, Iceland
For those of you wanting to quench your adventure cravings, filled with moments that will inspire you to pack your bag, then The Secret Life of Walter Mitty set in Greenland, Iceland is definitely a must-see.
Enjoy your Travel-From-Home marathon!
