ANOTHER 7 films to give you a case of wanderlust

Along with travel, going to the cinema and watching films are my favourite things to do so travel films are right up my street. I've done a couple of travel film lists before and you can find them here - 7 films to trigger wanderlust and 7 more films to inspire a bit of wanderlust.


1. Into the Wild (2007)
This is the true story of Christopher McCandless (or Alexander Supertramp) who left his whole life behind to set up camp and live off the land in Alaska. If you haven't seen it I won't give anything away but this film shows both the ups and downs of travelling and the negative repercussions of our actions.

2. The James Bond Collection (1954 - Present)
If you can show me a man who has seen more of the world than James Bond then I will give you a tenner (lol JK I'm broke). James Bond has been all over the world, saving lives and seducing women and the films showcase so many great destinations - They're a definite when it comes to inspiring wanderlust.

3. Wild (2014)
The beautiful (true) story of how Cheryl Strayed hiked 1,100 miles solo on the pacific crest trail, from the Mojave Desert in California to the Bridge of the Gods in Oregon. Cheryl Strayed is hiking in order to grieve for her mother who died of lung cancer, recover from her divorce and escape from a slowly building heroin habit. It's a truly great movie and Reese Witherspoon is wonderful in it.

4. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (2001-2003)
I'm cheating a bit as The Hobbit trilogy has already featured on my 'wanderlust' round ups but I would love to have a hike to Mt Doom (Mount Ngauruhoe) in the Tongariro National Park, New Zealand. The scenery in the LOTR films is just incredible.

5. The Jungle Book (2016)
Errr so pretty much all of The Jungle Book is shot in CGI but this doesn't stop me wanting to go on a jungle adventure in search of tigers, elephants, bears and panthers. I personally thought this film was visually stunning and it made me want to immediately book a Safari holiday.

6. The Bucket List (2007)
Two old fellas with cancer meet in hospital, strike up a friendship and decide to knock a few things off their bucket lists before they die. It's a real heart warming story with great turns from Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. It's a stark reminder that we all have an expiry date and should live life to the fullest, no matter what our age.

7. Anything by David Attenborough (1973 - Present)
David Attenborough is one well travelled 90 year old. From the Arctic to the Galapagos, I don't think there are many places he hasn't been. If you want to learn about the planet, be soothed by his marvellous voice and add some more places to your bucket list, his documentaries are ehat you need to watch,

Do you have any other travel films to add to the list? Let me know in the comments?
