Taking off on a grand adventure around the world is a daunting but completely rewarding endeavour to make. There are ongoing trials and tribulations to face at multiple times throughout each day and more often than not these can leave you wondering whether this was the right journey for you after all? But it was and it is, because if you have ever had the inkling to travel solo, you need to give it a chance and fulfil that desire for whatever reason it was you decided to go. Here are four of the best films to watch to encourage you that the solo journey is the one for you:
The Best 4 Movies to Watch Before you Travel Solo
Into the Wild (2007)
Topping the inspiration list for solo travel films is the 2007 hit, Into the Wild. This film is without a doubt one of the best travelogues out there for travellers to look to in search of inspiration.
This biopic follows the story of Cheryl Strayed as she covers 1,100km on the Pacific Coast Trail in the USA. Starring Reese Witherspoon, this film is set to be a traveller’s highlight in 2015.
This film surprised me. Tracks follows Robyn Davidson’s Australian camel trip in 1977, where she trekked 1700 miles across the Australian desert. Inspiring for solo female travellers in particular, this film is a must see for any solo women considering hitting the open road.
Eat, Pray, Love (2010)
First to Italy, followed by India, and finally Bali. Eat Pray Love is a popular favourite amongst women travellers in particular and encourages all viewers never to settle, and instead follow their hearts – wherever that may lead.
