As of now, we can't go outside our homes and wander around due to this spread of coronavirus. But as a traveler, the bug in you must be just jumping around to go outside and enjoy the cool mountain breeze on your face. While we can't go out physically, we can definitely let our soul free to the world.
You must be wondering, how can we do that? No worries, It's extremely simple, through movies. Yes, you read that correctly. We can live the moments through movies that we can't in real life... at least for the time being.
So, here are a few of the movies of my choice that are worth watching for every wandering soul that is trapped now:
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
This movie easily tops my list as it somehow resembles all of us.
The movie revolves around a daydreaming man who escapes from his monotonous life for a few moments to a land of fanatics filled with adventure, romance, and heroics. It's more of a story of how he really lives a life of adventure in pursuit of his friend and a famous photographer.

Into the wild
This movie revolves around the experiences of a kid who gives up his comfortable life in search of adventure. The best part of this movie is that the whole thing is based on the true story of a boy who went to the Alaskan wilderness to survive alone.

This movie is about the real-life story of two adventurers who started the climb to the summit of Mt. Everest, the highest point on Earth. As it happens in Everest, a violent storm strikes with little warning forcing the climbers to the harshest conditions.
