Sixty seconds is barely enough time to compose a short post. So how about fitting the whole world into 60 seconds?

I bet our wanderers will fall in love head over heels with this idea.
So I dare you to take a coffee break and watch these great videos to see how the magic is done. Discover what the world has to offer in just a blink of an eye.

What’s all the commotion? Three simple, stunning, single-minute takes translated into three powerful concepts – three words in three minutes: MOVE, EAT, LEARN. And three amazing glimpses of how travel inspires us to do, dare, and discover what lies beyond the consolations of our comfort zones and the safety blanket of our rooms. An epic trip! That kind of “around the world” odyssey you and your college buddies always dreamed about embarking on but never had the courage to even get started planning.

3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage ! They did it ! Watch your dream taking shape under your eyes ! Enjoy our world !

MOVE

LEARN

EAT

I hope the films stimulated your natural curiosity and wanderlust. So, who’s ready for a vacation?

Excerpt from the interview with Rick Mereki. I hope you’ll find it inspiring too. 🙂

Q: After 11 countries in 6 weeks, what has travel come to mean for you?
A: The more you travel, the more you become attached and connected to the world as a whole. I think that if a greater number of us spent time outside our comfort zones and immersed in other cultures, even for a little while, it would help reduce the “Us vs. Them” mentality that still exists in the world. People will always naturally base their beliefs and opinions on what is best for their family, their city, their country…but I think travel helps create mindsets that are more global.
Q: What is your top travel tip:
A: Open yourself up to everything and leave all your personal/cultural baggage at the door.

When the urge to travel feels magnetic…

Image

“There’s a level of travel that you can achieve wherein you almost cease to exist as you have been known to yourself. I don’t mean it as in a feeling of meaningless, or emptiness, but a sort of new kind of existence takes place. You become just particles in motion, closer in frequency to a ghost or something. You might think that what I’m writing is crazy, and if you do, I suggest you grab a backpack and hit the road for a while. And when your body says it’s time to go home, don’t. Just keep going. I promise you there’s a high on the other side more memorable and beautiful that you can imagine.”

All great stories start from that one adventure. That one dream. That one idea. That one step

“That we leave our homes, that we step through our doors to the world, that we travel our whole lives not because we want to collect exotic T-shirts, not because we want to consume foreign adventure the same Western way we consume plastic and LCD TVs and iPads, but because it has the power to renew us—not the guarantee, not the promise, just the possibility. Because there are places our imaginations can never construct for us, and there are people who we will never meet but we could and we might. It reminds us that there is always reason to begin again.”
