Many of us watch many travel movies only to realize that we do this inadvertently because we are passionately fond of travel adventures. Here are a few movies on Travel that have proved popular through the ages. It is possible to watch such classics over and over without getting bored.

Into the Wild

He parts with his life savings, meets various people on the way and is regaled with stories. He lives in the wilderness in Alaska on his own and the movie is about the experiences and adventures that he faces as he approaches “The Last Frontier.” It makes sense to go on such expeditions and learn to live life to the hilt gaining experience as you go along.
Last Stop for Paul
This is a low budget movie worth watching. The movie has been shot without using a script and the actors are not really doing a great job. However the message that is relayed is humorous. The move is spontaneously shot like most travel deals are sought. The movie focuses on 2 men who set off for two weeks round the world and spread the ashes of their friends in every country they stop.
