Last week we watched an awesome movie which got me totally inspired to get off my butt and make the most of my time off. I love movies that inspire me to explore more and make me want to book flights to somewhere new. There’s something so exciting about planning the next adventure and not knowing exactly what might happen, what you’ll see or who you might meet along the way.
I know a lot of you are inspired by travel and adventure, so I thought I’d share a list of my favourite “Get off your ass and get exploring” movies that I’ve watched in the last few years and I hope in return you’ll tell me some of your favourites too.
Based on the book by Cheryl Strayed, Wild follows the journey of a young woman, played by Reece Witherspoon, who sets off to walk the Pacific Crest Trail as a way of escaping great personal tragedy and getting back in touch with herself.
Captain Fantastic (2016)
A heartwarming movie about a family living out in the wilderness in the USA and their alternative approach to modern day life.
Whilst climbing Everest is perhaps not a feat that many people will attempt, this movie still inspires the view to push their limits and achieve extraordinary things.
A Walk In The Woods (2015)
Retired travel writer Bill Bryson struggles with adjusting to returning to suburban life and plans to hike the Appalachian Trail across America with an old friend.
The true story of a young woman who sets out to cross the Australian desert from Alice Springs to the west coast ocean with her dog and four camels.
