If the COVID19 crisis has you feeling anxious about travel, you’re not alone. Countless travellers experienced their worse-case-scenarios when the pandemic hit and these stories have left many of us fearful of travel. But we believe that the benefits of travelling - even just short weekend trips - give you more than just a change of scenery. We believe that travel has the power to expand people’s horizons and change them for the better.
If you need a little push or reminder of why travel is worth it, take inspiration from these brave travelling protagonists. We rounded up ten of our favourite travel-themed books and films with main characters that overcome adversity, encounter life-changing experiences, meet amazing people and come home transformed in a good way.
