Two Movies, Two Different Travel Stories

Travel- it is an activity that brings different feelings to different people. Most of us consider this as a key means to spend a long or short holiday, some of us consider this as a lucrative career option, but there are few people who consider think that it is the cause of their living-those people are passionate travellers. From ancient period, since man has learned to tell or write stories, we have heard or read numerous stories on travel. It is a topic that attracts all famous writers of past and present. And with the invention of motion pictures, we have seen several movies telling stories of different travellers of real life or from the fictions. Here are two such movies that define two different tours of two different sets of travellers.
