The 10 movies that have inspired us to travel - Why travel?

What movies have inspired us to travel? I had long wanted to write an article like this. I think everyone a good book or a good movie has helped us reflect more than once in our lives. I remember those hours reading some novel of Julio Verne and dreaming at the same time how to live one of his adventures. When we talk about cinema, we not only see it from a more visual perspective, but also from criticism. There are movies that move us, which invite us to discover new worlds or simply live new adventures. No matter what they represent historical or unreal moments, the important is that invite you to reflect and above all, to help you inspire you and take out what you have inside.

The 10 movies that have inspired us to travel

We have selected 10 films that have inspired us to have this passion for traveling so inside. Many of them are very different. Some are epic stories with stunning landscapes. Others reflect moments in history and simply science fiction, but they all have two things in common, adventure and the challenge to travel.

Let's talk about them in alphabetical order and aaahh, don't forget to follow us on our channel Youtube 🙂

1. Dancing with wolves

Among an exceptional soundtrack of John barry and spectacular landscapes of the interior of the United States, specifically South Dakota, the movie Dancing with Wolves evokes greatness and destinations that at the time were virtually intact, destinies that man will wither over time.

2. Road to freedom

Although it is a fairly recent movie, I think what it shows in it is a real adventure crossing Siberia, one of the destinations that every adventurer would like to go through. In this case it is the flight of some prisoners from a Soviet gulag in 1940. The landscape is impressive, the adventure great. Only with the scenarios do you want to take your backpack and walk kilometers until you reach those endless Russian steppes. The best, several of them ended up arriving at theIndia crossing the almighty Himalayas. To be in 1940 is not incredible ?.
