A long weekend is coming, Candy Girls, and that means there's more time for you to get out and go on an adventure. You don't necessarily have to go camping or mountain climbing. All you have to do is go out and discover new places and new culture to learn from and to love. However, if you're feeling adventurous but you just also need the long weekend to recharge, here are movies about the world and beyond to feed your adventurous side.

1. The Revenant

This movie starring two of the best actors we've ever known—Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy—will put you at the edge of your seats 80% of the time. One thing remains true, though, by the time you finish the movie: if you have something to live for, you will get through anything and everything.

2. Up

This adorable movie from Pixar proves that adventures are so much better when you share it with a friend or a loved one. Even years after it hit theaters, we still can't get enough of these two characters' adorable personalities.


3. 127 Hours

When faced with a difficult situation, never, ever give up. That is what this movie, based on the life of Aron Ralston, who got stuck while going on a solo adventure in Blue John Canyon, instills in all of us. It's easy to just surrender when you're literally caught between a rock and a hard place, but if you do, you won't be able to see how things work out for you in the end, will you?

4. Wild

Remember that your journey to finding yourself and completely healing is an adventure that's always, always worth-taking. Just like Cheryl's journey to getting her life back in order by walking through the Pacific Crest Trail, your adventure to who you really are and who you're meant to be won't be easy. But you'll see in the end how all things naturally come together and work out for your good.

5. Tracks

There are journeys and adventures you're meant to share with loved ones, but there are also those that you're meant to take alone. Such is the lesson this movie, based on the life of Robyn Davidson, teaches us after taking us to a breathtaking adventure through the Australian deserts to the Indian Ocean.


6. Moonrise Kingdom

Sometimes what we need the most is a short escape from our sometimes chaotic world, and this Wes Anderson movie offers that. Join the little adventure two young teens take when they felt so fed up with their world—and remember that you should always ask permission from your parents when you want to go somewhere else.

What movies do you watch when you're feeling a little adventurous, Candy Girls? Let's talk in the comments. We always love hearing from you. :)
