Travel Documentary: Travel Where You Live

As you know I LOVE inspiring travel movies, short films or documentaries and I am always looking for new ones to watch on YoutubeVimeo or Documentarytube. Last time I shared with you one that was filmed in Iceland that left me speechless.

I just stumbled upon one that immediately grabbed my attention just by reading its title. Little did I know it would leave me seriously pondering at the very end! Travel Where You Live was filmed by Sebastian Linda  a talented cinematographer hailing from the Saxony region in Germany.

As you will see, the scenery of his native land is just stunning. The quality of the film is incredible and you really feel as if you’re right there with him rediscovering it again but with a new perspective!

The questions he asks the viewers are valid and so true!


What if we live in the same way we travel?

What if we go on a journey in front of our front porch?

What if we would live every day, as if we´d been on a journey?


It sure gives you some food for thoughts and we may appreciate our own backyards even more after seeing this. (It has also inspired me to start filming more than just taking still photographs 🙂

So without further ado, here is Travel Where You Live

 Hope you enjoyed it!

What do you think about it?

Should we explore even more what’s around us before jetting off to a tropical island?

Share your thoughts with us in the comments section!

I can’t wait to read from you.

Until next time!

Safe and happy Travels.

  1. Such a tough question to answer. I know there are amazing places and things to see right on my door step but it always feels a bit more adventurous when you have to get your passport and head to a foreign land where they speak a different language and eat different food!

    • Well it is a matter of truly appreciating more what we got nearby than just escaping to the nearest beach or sunny island 😉

      When you are away you do see home from a different perspective and really makes you appreciate what you have.

      Travel transforms, that I have to agree with you. Near or far!

  2. Love this! Last year I started to try and do more travelling at home in the UK, where we are spoilt for choice with history, countryside and amazing cities. It was so nice to learn more about my home country and really made me appreciate what we have here 🙂

    • Glad you love it!

      Yes it’s true, you have lots to see and do in the UK (just as I’ve a gazillion things to check out here at home in Canada).

      It is just amazing how incredibly fortunate we are to life with different eyes every time we step out of our front door!

      It sure makes us appreciate our own backyard even more 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by and many happy travels!

  3. Love the video! I started to escape London and explore the UK, when i traveled by van over the past few years, I discovered some amazing places.

    The only problem with traveling where you live is finding the time to do so, somehow the day to day grind can leave you somewhat uninspired. But if once you get up and go out it feels good 🙂

    • Glad you liked it!

      Yes I agree that due to our day to day activities we may not always have enough time to go out there in our own backyard and once we do have time we just want to go as far away as possible.

      We must make it a priority and don’t have to spend too much in order to enjoy what’s available nearby!
