7 Inspirational Travel Videos To Help Inspire Your Next Vacation

There’s just something about a good travel video that makes you want to pack your bags, call in sick to work, and visit a new place that you’ve never been to before. The sights and sounds that a video provides can inspire you like no photo or written article ever could, and a good storyteller can bring you along for a shared escape that lets your mind wander to far away places for those few minutes, and imagine yourself traveling the world and seeing new sites, tasting new foods, and meeting new people.

If you’re in need of some travel inspiration, or just a little extra motivation to plan your next trip, check out these seven videos:
