My Top Favorite Travel Films (Wanderlust Edition!)


Now, knowing me, I am a huge traveler. I love to travel, and have had the lovely opportunity to visit many different countries and places throughout the world at such a young age.

Part of the reason is due to the fact that my parents had raised me to travel, and to appreciate it. There has never been a time during the summer and winter school breaks (well, maybe except one or two times) that I hadn’t been away from home, either traveling within the states or outside of the country. Ever since I was only a few months old, I had already taken my first airplane- and overseas! Helps to have relatives who live abroad… 😛

Another reason was the fact that I, well, grew up. Over the years, I became inspired to go out on my own, having taken French in school and wanting to go to France at some point in my life (which has since came true!). I also spent lots of time watching and subscribing to many travel vloggers on Youtube, as well as regarding travel shows on television and films. Over time, my wanderlust grew and grew, and right now, I am extremely lucky to have the chance to satisfy that wanderlust by traveling throughout Europe whilst living in France. Booyah! 😀

In any case, I would like to share a piece of my passion for traveling with you…in film-style! Below is a list of my favorite films for the traveler at heart. Perhaps you’ve seen some or all of them, but in any case, I hope you enjoy and share the same sentiments as I do- with traveling, that is! I will also include the location in which the film references: enjoy! 🙂

    Awesome selection! You must watch this Bollywood movie titled “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara”! It’s shot entirely in Spain 🙂 it’s about three friends who go on their bachelor trip, and they learn about love and well, life 🙂

    Great choices! I haven’t seen one or two of them so now I have to go see if I can find them. By the way, you had me at food porn!
