Top Movies to Inspire Your Wonderlust

It’s easy to fall into the normal every day pattern of life, moving through each day as if you were a programmed robot. Before moving abroad, I had this type of life. Every single day seemed to run together and I found myself missing out on so many of the joys of life, while actively striving to get as many overtime hours as possible in order to earn more money. More money meant more materialistic items, something I thought I NEEDED starting off in my career.

However, in the middle of my career as a nurse, my heart began to change and I started to imagine my life outside of the long 16 hour a day work schedule that I had. My curiosity about the world grew each day, which led me into a phase of exploration. During that time, I would escape during every break I could get throughout the day in order to read articles, books and magazines related to travel and culture. At night, I would instantly put on an inspiring TV show or movie and fall asleep dreaming about the mysterious world that we live in.

Over the years I have found inspiration in many aspects of life, movies being one of them. If you have a hidden desire in your heart to explore the world and you just need a little push to get you outside of your comfort zone, there are some amazing movies that can inspire you to do things you never thought that you could do.

Check out some of my top movie choices that will inspire you to take action and explore the world.
