20 movies to inspire wanderlust

Traveling is my all time favorite things to do, but when I can’t travel the next best thing is to head to the cinema. Movies have the amazing ability to take you to far away places without ever leaving your home. So when you can’t manage to fly away you can still get carried away somewhere new at home. Below are my favorite movies that inspire wanderlust.
