Eat Pray Love (2010)

 

When Elizabeth Gilbert decided to leave everything behind, including a failed marriage, for a 1 year trip across the world, she did not know how much the journey of self-discovery she would go through would change her forever. Inspired on the bookseller of same name, this is a story of what really is important to us and having the courage to step out of our comfort zone.

Into the wild (2007)

 

Another biographical adventure, based on the real story of Christopher McCandless, a newly grad who renounces his possessions and a privileged life to start a journey to Alaska and live in the wilderness. He gives all his savings to charity, abandon his car and does not give any explanation to his family, who does not know anything about his plans or where he is. Along the way, he encounters several characters who will change his life.

The way (2010)

 

A father travels overseas to recover the body of his dead son who died while making the pilgrimage of Santiago of Compostela in Spain. He decides to make the journey himself in an attempt to understand his son and himself. The movie is full of emotional moments but also promises to make you laugh!

Under the Tuscan sun (2003)

 

Another movie based on a memoir of the same name, Under the Tuscan sun tells the story of Frances Mayes, who discovers her husband is cheating on her. 

After the loss of her house during the divorce, the newly divorced writer is depressed but with the motivation given from her best friend, she decides to go on a trip to Tuscany, where she buys a house on a whim in an attempt to change her life.

A walk in the woods (2015)

 

If you like some comedy adventure, you will have lots of fun with Bill Bryson, a travel writer who instead of simply retiring and enjoying his family decides to hike the Appalachian Trail. But if he was looking for peace the plan is spoilt by his friend Katz, the only one who agrees to accompany Bill on this adventure.

And as trouble shows up, so fun begins.

Out of Africa (1985)

 

The memoir of Danish author Karen Blixen, published in 1927, served as inspiration for this movie. When the aristocrat Karen moved to British East Africa (today Kenya) to join her husband, Baron Bor Blixen- Flecke, she could not imagine that after spending their money on a coffee plantation, Bor would turn to drinking and cheating on her, who becomes unhappy. But soon after, she falls in love with hunter Denys Finch Hatton, who prefers a more simple life and relationship than her upper class background.

 Between her love and independence, she soon will have to take a decision.

Midnight in Paris (2011)

 

Lovers of romantic comedy will be delighted with this original Woody Allen movie that combines fun and absurdity in the City of Light. Gil and his fiancée Inez - with her parents - are in a trip in Paris, and although they are madly in love, their differences start to show up. Gil wants to live in Paris and write a great novel while Inez prefers an upper-class American lifestyle. One night, he wonders off in the streets alone when, as a bell rings midnight, the magic happen and he sees himself in a very absurd yet enchanting situation- no spoilers!

Hit the road India (2013)

 

If you fancy travel documentaries, Hit the road India is a good recommendation. It shows the travel adventures of two friends from the USA and Canada participating in a 12 day long rickshaw rally from Mumbai to Chennai, the Mumbai Xpress, which is according to Lonely Planet one of the top ten adventures in the world. The movie counts with some interesting footage and does not attempt to hide anything.
