305 Movies That Make You Want To Travel: Part II

Untitled photo

Well, we're destination wedding photographer and videographer.
We traveled 62,498km in 2016 and 126,543km in 2017. It's no surprise that we love traveling.

Duh! We know we have said that like thousand times all over on our website like a broken record and you're getting sick of it but sorry, not sorry.
We also love cinema. So when these two things collide, a whole new universe is exploding. 

It was a Sunday evening in early February 2018 when our three month old baby girl Alexia was sleeping and Tara and I were looking for a light-hearted movie about travel to ease our unquenchable thirst for travel and adventure.

The struggle is real. Postpartum Travel: How Soon Is Too Soon?

We simply have watched way too many movies, so Tu had to do some more intensive searching for quite a while and after that we came up with the idea of writing an extensive blog post listing "some" (if 296 is qualified as some) movies that may spark others' wanderlust and spare them the time of digging the good old Google?

Many of these films below are not road movies, while many other films are not straight up movies about traveling and road trip. Some of them are great and classic, some don't have necessarily a solid story with cliche plot and characters are boring but it's not the point since this isn't a best-of list. The real star in common here is stunning setting of landscapes, natures and sceneries, cities and cultures, cuisines that make we fall in love with traveling all over again!

North Face / 2008 / Swiss Alps

A must see film for mountaineers & adventurers. We have watched a lots of climbing movies and this hands down is the best mountaineering films we have ever seen. The 3967-metre Eiger mountain in the Swiss Alps is the most notorious mountain in the history of extreme alpinism. Its North Face, the Eigerwand, is the largest of the great Alpine north faces which are snowier, icier and colder - like the K2 is one of the most difficult mountains for climbers nowadays, it was the Eiger in the 20s and 30s.

Watching this film is exhausting, harrowing, amazing, terrifying and makes other films about climbing the Everest look like a shallow travel commercial!
