1.   Before Sunrise: One of the Best Travel Movies on Netflix

This movie is actually a part of a trilogy – Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and Before Midnight. However, Netflix has only the first one. The movie describes a relationship between two travellers who meet on a training Europe.

While talking to each other in the lanes of Vienna, they share stories and form a beautiful connection. The reason I love this movie so much is that despite having a simple story, it displays human emotions in a very beautiful manner.

  • Director: Richard Linklater

  • Locations: Vienna
