They say that a picture is worth a thousand words and for that reason, perhaps there is nothing more inspiring than watching a good movie. Better then, if he talks about venturing out, getting out of the comfort zone, and going after our dreams, even if the path sometimes isn't easy. We've made a list of 10 super inspiring movies that we're sure will encourage you to be a digital nomad because, as Amyr Klink says (an eternal inspiration for us!), “One day you have to stop dreaming and somehow, leave"!

Some movies about digital Nomadism

1. In the wild

A classic for those who like travel movies, the film is an adaptation of a nonfiction book that tells the adventures of Christopher McCandless across the United States, in the 1990s. With a fantastic soundtrack and breathtaking photography, he tells the story of a young American who doesn't fit into the traditional lifestyle and decides to let go and take a trip to Alaska alone. Winner of 2 Oscars, it is at least remarkable and unforgettable.

2. Walter Mitty's Secret Life

The film with Ben Stiller talks about the importance of getting out of the comfort zone and not settling for a life that doesn't make us happy. The main character goes through several difficult moments and unexpected situations when he decides to travel to Greenland, Iceland and Himalayas, but at the end of the film we are left with that certainty in our hearts, that what life expects of us is and always will be courage.

3. Free (Wild)

Another film based on a true story – “Free – a woman's journey in search of a new beginning”, tells the story of a woman who, after her mother's death and a difficult divorce, decides to take a journey in search of self-knowledge and takes a long walk alone across the United States. Going through moments of weakness, difficulty and loneliness, this film shows us that, many times to reach our goals we really need to allow ourselves to slow down to start a new journey with the certainty that we are going the right way.

4. The Spanish Hostel

Amusing, the film shows the exchange of an economics student to Barcelona, ​​where he arrives totally unprepared and doesn't even know how to speak the local language. Stayed in a couple's house and later in an apartment that hosts students from various countries, the 25-year-old lives a true multiplicity of experiences, which introduce us to the reality of a foreigner who has just arrived in a totally new country, with strangers, having to rediscover and turn around.

5. Seven Years in Tibet

Trying to fulfill their dream of climbing the world's 9th highest peak, called Nanga Parbat, an Austrian climber and his friend arrive in the holy city of Lhasa, Tibet, where they end up staying longer than planned. Based on a true story, the film shows the radical change that travel brought to a person and how a place is able to impact a life so much. Really, traveling is much more than getting to know a new place, it's allowing yourself to transform.

6. On the road – On the road

Based on the book of the same name by Jack Kerouac, the film tells the story of 3 friends who decide to travel together across the United States, in search of a new meaning for their lives. Determined to live as they please and show the world that they could make their own rules, the film is very inspiring and makes us think about what kind of life we ​​want to live.

7. Tracks

Based on the story of Australian Robyn Davidson, who in 1977 crossed the Australian desert on a camel, accompanied by National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan. Robyn not only overcomes sexist doubts, she also brings to the world a reflection on the racism suffered by Aboriginal people. A film that tells the story of a brave woman, who faced challenges to pursue her dream, but succeeded, because when we do things with our heart, they tend to work out!

8. Chihiro's trip

The only animation on the list, this film was hugely awarded and was nominated for an Oscar for best animation in the year it was released. It tells the story of a little girl who, to meet the challenge of a new world, needs to abandon her pampered ways and fears and embark on a journey that requires courage and resilience. Fancifully and full of metaphors, this film has a lot to do with people's courage to leave the known and embark on digital nomadism.

9. Captain Fantastic

The film tells the story of a father with six children who live far from civilization, in the middle of a forest, with a routine full of adventures. Children fight, climb, read classic works, debate, hunt and practice hard exercises, always having self-sufficiency as the watchword. It's not a film about travel, but it's about living outside the box and without the standards of behavior that are expected of us. Happiness and success are concepts and it's up to us to decide how we're going to live our lives, isn't it?

10. The Way – The way to Santiago de Compostela

Tom is aAmerican doctor who travels to France to recover the body of his son, who died while on the way to Santiago de Compostela. Once there, he decides to follow the same path as his son and embarks on a deep journey about acceptance, love and self-knowledge, which gives new meaning to his life.

I share the 10 steps I learned in my quests towards my happiness!

1. Be present

In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we ended up spending most of our time on autopilot. We are doing one thing, but our mind is already thinking of a thousand other activities. We live today thinking about tomorrow or regretting what we had yesterday and, thus, we end up not enjoying the now.

I find it fascinating, for example, the way Italians eat a meal, in which they are fully present!

2. Appreciate the simple things

I realized that in most cases, the happiest people were not those who had more things or achievements, but those who knew how to value what they had, who knew how to see beauty mainly in simple things.

The happiest women I met were Indians, who lived in a miserable material situation.


3. Get closer to those who inspire me

Inspiring people bring contagious energy! Whenever we are with someone who inspires us, we feel better about ourselves and about life. In Islamic cultures, many families have the daily practice of getting together with friends and family to exchange what happened that day.

4. Make appointments with myself

Having time to be in our own company is also essential. When we are alone, we learn more about who we are and how we act in the world. The French are in the habit of making programs alone, from going to the movies, spending the afternoon in cafes or taking a walk in the park.


5. appreciate me

If we don't love each other, who else would, right?

However, being able to embrace one's imperfections is not an easy task. One step I found that helped me a lot in implementing this was the act of appreciating myself. Search daily for something in me that I liked. Little by little, I was giving myself more value and feeling happier with the person I am.

Thai people express true compassion in their daily lives. Compassion for others, but also for ourselves.

6. let go

Keeping in the present things and people that no longer make sense ends up preventing us from making room for new opportunities to appear. In this sense, learning to let go can be very interesting.

In India, Jains practice extreme detachment.

7. Play with a pulley

Playing a pulley is learning to see the positive side of things. For any situation, even the most complicated ones, there is always something positive. I always noticed this in children. Regardless of the origin or country we live in, when we are little we tend to laugh more and be more positive with life.

8. Stick your foot in the jackfruit

We have been following thousands of rules, customs and quirks. Part of them mandatory, but much of our choice to follow fads or advice on how we should be, act or react.

There are so many rules that, sometimes, we forget to take the time to do something that we simply feel like doing, something that breaks a little with the rigidity of everyday life. I decided to allow myself to have a weekly time to relax, to do what I want, to put my foot in the jackfruit!


9. Be grateful

Being grateful means opening up to what life wants to present to you, being grateful for the simple fact of being alive. We have so much to be thankful for and often we just remember to regret it. There are hundreds of studies that prove that grateful people are happier and that gratitude is good for your health!

10. believe

Believing is throwing yourself into the unknown and keeping your faith even when you lack rational reasons for doing so. When we believe, any miracle becomes possible!
