10 Movies You Will Enjoy If You Love Travel

I love that films let us escape.  They transport us to another world, and if it’s a good film, you get lost in the story, the characters AND the destination.

So if you enjoy traveling as much as I do, you will really enjoy these movies that include travel in their storylines.

You might have your favourite film, but these are my go-to picks for a travel adventure in a movie.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Eurotrip

I had to throw in this crazy and insane film, that is strangely enjoyable as Scott Thomas and his friends race across Europe trying to find his potential true love.

Before Sunrise

Can one night change your life? It seems Jesse and Celine will never be the same after a romantic night running around Vienna.  If you want to also see Paris you should check out the sequel – Before Sunset, and if you want to see Pylos in Greece you should check out the final film – Before Midnight.

The Way

Planes, Trains and Automobiles
