Somethings can only be learned when you're outside of your normal surroundings. Some experiences you'd never agree to do if you were home, but because you're the mindset of adventure you say yes. When you meet people on the road, knowing they're also away from home, you're more likely to become friends. "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness & many people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men & things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime." ~Mark Twain
This video was recently posted and is a part of a series based on "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."
And it is awesome.
