While social distancing may be the best thing for society right now, it already has us going a little stir-crazy! Combine that with the disappointment of cancelled trips, and we need a little wanderlust pick-me-up. With that in mind, we’re going to be doing a series of blogs with ways to get your travel fix while staying home. Today’s feature: travel shows and movies to stream on Netflix and Amazon Prime that will feed your wanderlust!
Our team of travel advisors are big fans of streaming in general – nothing like queuing up some Netflix shows to watch before a long flight! We’ve spent time enjoying the crazy realities of Tiger King, the ominous drama of Ozark, and the heartwarming Great British Baking Show, but there’s nothing like the chance to “roam from home” with a good travel show or movie. Below we’ve highlighted some of our favorites from both Amazon Prime and Netflix – get watching!
