    The 2010 release, The Way, by Director Emilio Estevez. A journey along the Caminod De Santiago in Northern Spain. Starting Martin Sheen. Great movie and has inspired many to travel the Camino.

    The Big Year is also a really great one. Its about birding, but it follows three men all over the US (to lots of national parks and far off places)!!!
