Ultimate Travel Movies

“I love waking up in the morning not knowing what’s gonna happen or who I’m gonna meet, where I’m gonna wind up.” – Jack, Titanic


We’re huge movie buffs at NomadHead. Besides actually being in an exotic location, the next best thing is to have your head stuck into a book or to zone out watching a film. Here are our picks for the most inspirational travel movies that will get you prepped for your big trip away.


General Overseas Adventures





  • Eurotrip. I watched this in Belgium during a Eurotrip of my own. Real fun being able to say you’ve been to the places the characters visit.
  • Beerfest. An American fraternity takes on the Germans at their own game: Oktoberfest.


North America





  • The Beach. Ultimate backpacker in Thailand movie.


Latin America









TV Shows


  • An Idiot Abroad Season 2. “I think it’s clever how Rome have kept a load of old stuff. There’s no overheads, yet people are going over there to see it.”
  • Tintin. A childhood favourite.
