20 Travel Inspired Movies

It’s Thoughtful Thursday!

As much as I would like to share movie lines or quotes, how about sharing travel inspired movies? Something you can watch for the coming weekend, Yay! I personally watched all of these and I know that someday, one day, I will see it with my own bare eyes, my own lenses. No worries, I won’t spoil anything, I’ll just tell you what place you can see in the said film.

1. The Bucket List (2007)

I know you have your own bucket list and you might want to know theirs. You might consider what’s on their list, it’s simply awesome and heartbreaking. You wouldn’t want to die without doing something great and legendary!

2. When In Rome (2010)

Being an adult is extremely exhausting, you might want to relax and fall in love while checking this chick-flick film shot in New York and Rome!

3. Into the Wild (2007)

There are some point in your life that all you want to do is quit everything and go somewhere far. See how Christopher McCandless did it in North America on his way to Alaska and live in the wilderness.
