Responsibilities like mortgages and bills often hinder traveling. Don’t worry, it happens to everyone — including me! Until I decide that credit scores don’t matter, I can’t neglect my commitments. So, when I’m home taking care of my duties instead of traveling, I turn to Netflix.
Many of us have subscriptions to Netflix (or at least the password to other peoples’ accounts… guilty) but haven’t been utilizing them for travel; there are countless movies and documentaries that show us a glimpse of the world without having to emerge from the depths of our couches. It is a great asset for travelers when we want to just go but are stuck at home handling these responsibilities.
Here are 15 of my travel favorites on Netflix:
An Idiot Abroad
Living on One Dollar
Mile… Mile & a Half
On the Way to School
(similar programs include Life, Frozen Planet, Wildest Islands, etc.)
Hector and the Search for Happiness
Take Me Home
Avoid: Why Planes Vanish, Air Disasters
