One of my favourite movies is The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. The storyline, journey, and film location has brought me to Iceland in 2018, after two years of saving.
You see, sometimes a movie is so powerful that it creates a strong connection with its viewer. Such a good movie – and a very good one – will always bring colour and inspiration into someone’s life.
When it comes to travelling, we sometimes need some sort of inspiration to push us to get on that plane and to reach our destination.
In January 2016, I wrote about movies that will inspire us to travel. I listed five movies, all of which are my favourites. If you haven’t read it already, click here.
This time, I list down another five movies and put a link to each, so you can also watch it. Enjoy and be inspired.
1. The Way
If you ask me, one of my next big trips is going on a spiritual journey and walking the Camino de Santiago. This movie will show you what it’s like to walk the Way of St James from France to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. If you want to go on a journey of self-discovery, I suggest you put Camino de Santiago on your list.
2. Midnight in Paris
Paris, c’est la vie et belle. Tres magnifique et chic! It is a city of love, culture, and inspiration. I’ve always wanted to visit Paris. If you want to catch a glimpse of Paris, this movie will give you a feeling of walking and having enchanted evening in the streets of Paris, and to just be inspired by it.
3. Hector and The Search For Happiness
Other than learning something about travelling and the pursuit of happiness, this movie takes you on an interesting and hilarious adventure to China and Africa, among other places. This movie somehow makes me want to go to Africa. Next year, perhaps?
4. Queen (Hindi)
When your life turns upside down, just pack your bag and go travel. Do it solo. Find your balance and learn to stand on your feet again. Be open and just live. If you don’t have the guts, maybe this movie will help kickstart your journey.
5. Journey to Greenland (French)
Greenland, through this movie, is spectacular. I definitely want to explore Greenland and meet the Inuit people. There’s something about Greenland in this movie. It exudes calmness and excitement.
