A good movie is like a drug. It consumes my attention whole and makes me obsess and think about things, facts, and stories that I saw. Welcome to my movies list inspiration!

What inspires YOU to travel?

Lately, we have been busy moving, reducing clutter, celebrating birthdays, preparing for family reunions, and setting new goals for the future to come. I have good news: we are traveling again! Our new destination is New York. Due to our upcoming trip то the Big Apple, I have been thinking about what inspires me about future destinations. I love movies and I like learning through them so it is natural for me to start my research by watching a new story. I decided to come up with a movie list that triggered an interest, sparked an enthusiasm, and inspired me to learn more about new countries and cities that I have never seen before.

Who does not like a good story and a eye candy backdrop in them?

Here is my movie and cartoon list that inspired me to seek more and go beyond Tripadvisor suggestions. Thanks to them, I saw the behind the scenes of many different cultures, cities that allow specific freedoms, countries that want you to travel longer or shorter, forests with vending machines, oceans with pink dolphins, islands with monkeys, and mountains that are solid rocks.

I would suggest watching them regardless of whether you are a traveler or not. They are so good you are bound to learn something new and be entertained.
