Travel inspiration from movies
Have you ever watched a movie that makes you do your luggage and go to see the world? I’m sure you have, and many times. Here is the list of movies that inspire you to go on some nice destinations:
Eat, pray, love (2010)
The movie tells the story of a woman’s search for everything, as she travels to Rome (pursuit of pleasure), India (pursuit of devotion) and Bali (pursuit of balance).

7 years in Tibet (1997)
What better than to see Brad Pitt and travel to Tibet, the best place to go on a spiritual journey, at the same time? Awarded for Best Actor, Pitt plays the part of Heinrich Harrer, an egocentric Austrian mountaineer that comes to learn selflessness from the Dalai Lama.
The fact is that everyone loves films and adores to travel, so why not combine both of them? Well, the list can go on and on, but here is what I’ve come up with. If this article didn’t make you want to travel, I’m sure it made you want to watch some movies, or maybe vice versa. Should I say “have a safe trip” or “enjoy your movie”?
