Here is my favorite list of 31 travel inspirational movies of all the time that inspired me to grab my backpack to just live, go, travel & explore. I swear I watched the No.1, 2, 3, 8, 21 & 31 more than 5 times.
1. The secret life of Walter Mitty
One of the best modern Travel inspirational movies of my time. This very motivational movie can make you move to tears.
I still remember the first time I watched this movie was summer 2013, decided to quit my job the week after to backpack South East Asia.
Released In April 2013, nearly 20 minutes of footage was presented by Fox at CinemaCon in Las Vegas followed by a theatrical trailer release in July, both of which began to spark awards speculation.
The movie is about an employee (Walter Mitty) at Life magazine and his adventure to discover the world in an unexpected and fantastic way. The landscape of Iceland’s breathtaking. It’s not only motivational but also hilarious.
Here are some inspirational travel quotes that I’ll never forget:
“Sean O’Connell: Sometimes I don’t. If I like a moment, for me, personally, I don’t like to have the distraction of the camera. I just want to stay in it.”
2. Eat Pray Love
“Eat, Pray love” is another must-see travel inspirational movie, a guide to discover one’s best self, to relish peace & to live your life the same way. We’re always searching for happiness outside but hardly realize that it’s an inside job. The “Eat, Pray, Love” by American author Elizabeth Gilbert’s with my favorite actress Julia Roberts in the film (2010) has changed Bali forever. Eat, pray, love may make you see romance, adventure and spirit with new eyes.
