There are lots of reasons as to why some people decide to hit the road. Love, longing, running from a life, starting a new life, loosing yourself, finding yourself, being free, being part of something and so on. So everyone hits the road for different reasons, including me 🙂 I want to share some of these movies that really inspired me and made me keep walking and continue traveling. Be careful cause you too might want to hit the road after watching these movies.
