Virtual traveling through movies, TV and books

Even though we can’t physically travel right now, we can still explore from our couches!  A week ago, I asked you all on my Instagram stories to send me your favorite books, movies or TV shows that feature destinations that make you feel like you’re there.  My example was movies like Julie & Julia; a movie that makes me feel like I’m in Paris.  Here are all the recommendations that you gave me, plus some of my favorites.  Enjoy!
