Travel Around the World in One Minute

I caught the travel bug when I was 20.

I studied abroad in England and traveled more than I had in my entire lifetime up til that point. That year, I fell in love with traveling. (That also happened to be the year that I realized that I was going to marry my now-husband-of-almost-10-years. Yes, it was a good year.)

We love to travel but when we can't, I'm almost as happy traveling vicariously through other people. If you're an armchair traveler too, here's an awesome 1-minute long travel video of this guy:

The story behind the video, in their own words:

3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage... all to turn 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food ....into 3 beautiful and hopefully compelling short films.....

= a trip of a lifetime.
You'll want to watch this in full-screen HD (and probably more than once):

MOVE from Rick Mereki on Vimeo.

Two of my favorite reasons to travel are the titles of their other 2 videos, LEARN and EAT.


  1. Wow - this definitely makes me want to travel more! Why the heck am I not overseas right now?!

  2. I remember seeing this video and thinking - what a cool idea! Traveling is one of the things worth living. In no other way can you get more experience and knowledge of the world.

  3. That's a very cool video - I called my kids over to watch.
