Top wanderlust inducing films – Part 1

by Travelbag on 19 April 2016, 14:04PM

July and August bring with them the summer holidays, but we didn’t need to tell you that.. Your work screensaver is the beach you plan not to move from for a week. It’s been too long since your last holiday and you’re banking on this holiday to recharge your batteries and release you of all responsibility, providing that young again feeling. But if you aren’t holidaying, these films will still provide you with that much needed escapism, even if it just for two hours, or twenty if you fancy watching them all in one sitting. (SPOILER ALERT) these will have you looking for holidays straight after. 

Wild (2015) 

USA Pacific Crest Trail

Location: USA, Pacific Crest Trail

Based on the true story of Cheryl Strayed’s 1995 hike that spanned the whole 1,100 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail. This journey of self discovery inspires you to take on your own journey, meet new people, and hear their stories. If it doesn’t do this for you, it is set amongst the stunning scenery that is the Pacific Crest trail including: Mount Adams, Sequoia National Park, and Bridge Of The Gods. So, it will at least have you wanting to see America in all its natural beauty.

Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013)

Iceland Roadtrip


Location: USA, Greenland, Iceland, Canada, Himalayas 

Our second of the severe wanderlust-inducing films - The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. This film follows Ben stiller on a crazed worldwide adventure in search of a co-worker, leading him to some of the most stunning places from Greenland, to Iceland, to even the Himalayas. Mitty’s brave trip and amazing longboarding experience is certain to make you leave no stone unturned during your next holiday.


The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2012)

India

Location: India, Rajasthan 

See the beauty of the Indian state, Rajasthan, without ever having to leave the comfort of your home. Doing this, however, will leave you feeling much like Jean (Penelope Wilton) who really misses out on the local culture that you only truly get from immersing yourself in with the locals, something you should be sure to do when finding yourself in a new culture.


The Endless Summer (1966)

Surfing Worldwide

Location: Worldwide

This Surf documentary is set following the lives of two surfers. The pair had theorised it is possible to follow the summer season around the world – hence Endless Summer. The film was the first to encourage people to live the travel and surf lifestyle after showing new, unknown surfing locations away from Hawaii, such as California, Australia, New Zealand, and Cape Town. Just like it did in the sixties, this film will definitely inspire you to chase these locations, and possibly, even attempt to live an Endless Summer of your own.
