Traveling is my escape from everyday life and the best way to get inspired at the same time.
Having traveled to over 55 countries in less than 10 years, it would be correct to say that the world feels like a second home to me.
Since traveling has become a daily routine, what keeps my passion alive, it's these incredibly inspiring travel films that put me back in the traveler's mindset. Whether it's a film about a literal or mental journey - the will to live and experience the world.
# 1. Motorcycle diaries
The most amazing and inspiring movie I have watched in recent years. 2 students start a roadtrip through Latin America on a motorbike which lasts about 5 months. Combining both moments of adventure and some of Latin America's most wonderful sights, this film is an ode to human relationships and the bonds created by travel.
# 2. In nature
Based on the true story of Christopher McCandless who denies a life full of luxury to live out his dream of traveling through Alaska. “Travel is new experiences, good and bad,” he says and I totally agree; To travel is to find oneself, to broaden one's horizon, one's vision of the world. That's what this film is about.

Is Julia Roberts the finest example of a female traveler alone? It definitely is. Her character travels to Italy, India, and Indonesia on a mission to find inner peace and happiness - a series of events and a non-stop mental journey change her entire world until she finds it.
Traveling means happiness - you see why I identified with her?

The best time to visit Italy are the months of May, June, and September. Compared to the peak summer months of July and August, these months offer more comfortable temperatures and there are fewer crowds ( except around Easter ). The country experiences four classic seasons per year, although there is a marked difference between the wetter, cooler North and the drier, warmer South. The rainiest months pretty much everywhere are usually October and November.
Fall ( September – November ) : temperatures cool down gradually, although September is usually still very pleasant. Expect crisp fall leaves and some sunnier days, but plan for wet weather too. Fall carries many of the same benefits as spring, but with slightly less predictable weather.
Winter : temperatures in the South remain mild in winter, while Northern Italy is normally wet and cold. Winter in the Italian Alps is fantastic though for skiing and snowboarding, but the ski resorts do get crowded so book early.
Travelers wishing to visit Italy can use a bus, train, plane, or boat to get there. Most tourists arrive by plane though, often landing in Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport, the country’s busiest airport. This is the preferred point of entry in Italy when you want to visit Rome, or saut the entire country. Click here for a continuously updated list of airlines that offer direct flights to Rome.
Although Rome is the main getaway for most visitors to Italy, it’s often easier and cheaper to fly directly to/from one of the country’s other airports. It can also save you a lot of time to book a multi-city ticket, hereby arriving in one airport and leaving from another ( for example fly in Milan in the north and fly out via Naples in the south ). The following airports are of interest for most tourist itineraries :
Milan Malpenza Airport ( north ) is the largest international airport in the Milan metropolitan area in northern Italy ( and also the main getaway to the Italian Lakes ). Click here for a continuously updated list of airlines that offer direct flights to Milan.
Venice Marco Polo airport ( north ) is the international airport of Venice. It offers flights to many European metropolitan areas as well as some partly seasonal long-haul routes to the United States, Canada, South Korea and the Middle East.
