Travels With My Father Netflix

One of the biggest reasons why we travel is to experience new cultures and destinations. While travel is shutting down across the world due to COVID-19, escaping, planning bucket lists and living vicariously through others is what we have to fulfill our travel dreams at the moment. Here are the travel shows we are binge-watching on Netflix right now. Whether they are culinary-focused or show off multi-generational inspirational travel (with humor, of course!), this is how we are passing the time to get inspired for when we can get back to doing what we love—which is travel the world.
