Films can transport you.
I mean, not literally, it’s not like you’re actually boarding the same flight as your favorite heroine in a film, but figuratively, I’ve been everywhere.
All I have to do is pop on a film or show involving travel and I get an immediate need to pack up my bag and buy a plane ticket! It doesn’t help that the town I used to live in (Wilmington, NC) is a film hub and I somehow manage to constantly find movies or shows filmed there and have a desperate need to move back. Thank you, Nicholas Sparks, for that.
I do have my go-to flicks for days when I just need to experience a city again.
Topping my list of I-need-to-pack-this-very-second-or-else entertainment is anything from Rick Steves’ Europe! I have his entire Europe Through the Backdoor collection on DVD and love being able to say “I need some Amsterdam today!” and throwing the DVD in, curling up with some cheese, and diving into a Dutch daydream.
Following shortly behind Rick (by the way, if you’re reading this, you’re magical) is this amazing assortment of travel shows and movies. There’s definitely something for everyone on this list, from horror to romance to history! Browse away and I hope you get some serious wanderlust!
Romeo & Juliet (2015)
Whale Valley (I have not managed to watch this one yet. It’s on my list with thousands of others!)
Trapped (Another I have not managed to watch yet, but looks really good!)
General Travel Inducers
The Grand Tour / Top Gear
House Hunters International
Of course, there are tons of movies and shows filmed all over the world, and to be honest, I could sit and come up with more and more to list, but these are the ones which top my list and inspire me personally. Did I leave your favorite off? I can’t wait to watch your recommendations as well! Leave them below!
