A list of travel movies. Films about people who err on the side of caution in the quest for adventure. But not only that, but also films about people and cultures. Stories. About love. Grief. Joy.
Janapar: Love on the bike
A love story that takes place on a bicycle. A dilemma when Tom has to choose between his love for the bicycle or his love for Tenny, a lady he meets in Armenia.
I really don’t know what I’m doing. You never know who you are going to meet and what you are going to eat in the evening. regret it. ”
You can stream the movie for £ 5 via www.janapar.com. Tom Allen was one of my biggest inspirers for a long bike trip from Rotterdam to Singapore in 2015.
Down to Earth
Down to Earth is the result of a five-year journey made by a family with their three children in search of the hidden sages of the earth; the Earth Keepers. They realized that the wisdom of the tribal elders should not be lost to the world.
A very interesting film, which can be streamed for € 4.99 via www.downtoearth.com.
Human the Movie
Human the Movie is a very beautiful film where women and men all over the world simply share their story. It is not really a travel film, but for me traveling is about people and cultures, discovering and better understanding. This is exactly what this movie does.
The entire film can be viewed for free at www.human-themovie.org.
The Road From Karakol
In the summer of 2011, Kyle Dempster traveled to Kurgystan. A former Soviet republic in the heart of Central Asia. His goal was to climb large peaks across the country by bicycle. Like every great adventure, not everything went as planned.
“There are two choices in life: the known and the unknown. Maybe it was the fact that I came this far. Or maybe is was the wodka. Or maybe it was something else… but I choice the unknown.”
RIP Kyle as he died in August 2016 during a climbing expedition in Pakistan.
The Longest Way
In 2008, Christopher walked through China – 1 year, 4500km. He let his hair and his beard grow. This is the resulting video. He is currently finishing his walk by walking through Turkey and Europe. He is blogging here: https://thelongestway.com.
