    Hello Nafisa, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011) and Queen (2013) both are very nice movies which covered nice travel places. Specially Queen movie that push you to go solo on a trip. There are many movies that inspire to travel but not many that motivate us to push our boundaries and realize that we don’t need partners to enjoy trips.

    Nafisa you are also a solo traveler and inspiring many others. BTW your youtube videos are great. Keep traveling and updating great experience you have.

    You should also watch Tamasha Movie which is also great and covers city of Corsica. Great place to travel for your next trip plan.
