Armchair travel – it’s really a thing. Whether you are traveling the world from the comfort of your living room couch or looking for inspiration for your next great adventure, Taste of Cinema has compiled a list of 15 movies that are certain to pique your wanderlust. 

"Each and every person has an element of escapism in them, whether their deserved distraction from the monotonous grey matter of day to day life is traveling, reading, blogging, shopping, undertaking sports, attending gigs, poetry, meditation or losing yourself in cinema (which subsequently results in writing articles on the internet), we all have the same common urge to surround our lives with passion, intrigue and excitement," writes Dan Carmody writes for Taste of Cinema. 

Cinema, he notes has a wonderful way of inspiring people. 

Films can frequently induce an uncontrollable impulse to travel to certain destinations, allowing you to see the vivid and mesmerizing visuals and unique cultural elements previously witnessed on a screen, writes Carmody.
