Coronavirus. COVID-19. Whatever you call it, it sucks. From closed boarders to full-on quarantine, the world’s travel plans have shut down. But, while we work through this together, we can still dream of our next amazing trip.

Here are the top travel shows on Netflix to take your mind off the craziness.
