Founded in 1997, Netflix has grown at a tremendous pace and became the biggest streaming platform in the world. At first, I was not interested at all. I’ve always liked going to the cinema with friends but it’s true that it is not something essential for me. But I couldn’t stop hearing about it from travellers I met. I finally decided to give it a go. Now, I can not live without it ! It’s an incredible way to keep busy during some lonely nights.

Huge selection of films and series

My favourite thing about Netflix is the choice we have. There are thousands of movies and if possible, even more series. It is easy to find exclusive contents. Indeed, a lot of series are produced by Netflix itself, and are only available on their platform. It is the case of most of the documents for example, or biographic story.

According to your preferences, all the genres can be found. It doesn’t matter if you’re a fan of action movies, romantic or comedy. You will always find what you are looking for! I, per instance, love sci-fi and fantastic cinema. I have watched the Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings  sagas at least one hundred times each! But I love discovering new films which I didn’t have a clue they existed. The independent one “The discovery” for example was a real punch in the face! I absolutely recommend you to check it out! On a lighter note, there are tons of comic series. It is hard to make a choice, but who is going to complain? Friends is always going to be my favourites one.

You can watch Netflix anywhere

You just need to create an account. Then there are infinite possibilities. You can of course watch directly with the Wi-Fi or your data on your phone. But the best in my opinion and what makes Netflix stand out from the rest of the market, is that you can watch it literally anywhere. It is very easy to download your favourite series and watch it later. I find it so useful when I have a 20 hours bus ride through the desert for example! This offline mode is definitely a lifesaver. It is also very enjoyable to share the TV screen with all the friends you meet in the hostel. I often organize a “cinema night”! We buy pop corns and pizzas and watch our favourites TV show. It is a unique way to bond with people.

Netflix travel mobile


Among all the streaming platforms, Netflix is an incredible discovery. I could not imagine going back to my life without it. It is also a good topic to chat with people you meet. I can now talk about the most famous movies, actors and directors, which I couldn’t before.

If you don’t have it in your life yet, I strongly advise you to have a look on the subscription offers!
