After I quit my job last year, I packed a bag, grabbed my camera and bought a one way ticket to London. 17 countries later, I compiled this time lapse of the many amazing places I came across.

Special thanks to Dan Hirons, Joey Seich and Carol Trieu for all your help, support and patience.

To all my fellow travelers whose company made each step of the way all the more memorable and unique, I want you to know that however short an appearance you made in the video, you've left an impact far greater and long-lasting than the few seconds that each city appeared in the video.

To my family, thank you for bearing with me and worrying about my health and safety with every dodgy bus ride and new country I found myself in each day.

 

It's Your Turn.

It doesn't have to be 17 countries, but it is time to start your next journey.
