Every once in a while we feel the urge to break free from our confines, escape the routines, and get out and explore the big planet we occupy. For many of us that means anything from a weekend to a few weeks away, after which, with batteries recharged we gladly return to our lives to face the details of life once again. Photographer Kien Lam had a different idea. According to his blog, he seems to have always let life lead him where it may. He started out early, at age 6, wanting to be an international ping-pong champion. Then somewhere between grade school and university and a brief stint as a financial strategist, he ended up as an international photographer. When he quit his job, he grabbed his camera and booked a one way ticket to London. This video titled Speeding Around the World in Under 5 Minutes documents his 343 day, 17 country, 19 plane, 58 bus, and 18 boat trip on which he took the 6,237 photographs of his adventure that he used to make this video. That’s one big adventure an a great start to his new life.
